STEM Project: When Minecraft Meets Google Streetview.

Google Maps in the classroom

Google Street View is amazing. It allows you to walk the streets of the world and view amazing artefacts and monuments.

Minecraft is a tool that can be used to build and create things.

How can I use these tech tools in a STEM project?

Ask your students to search Google Street View and find places of interest.  They must then replicate them on Minecraft.


This project creates so many challenges and problems for students to solve, including:

  • Scale factor.
  • Building accurately.
  • Shapes.
  • Research.

Have a go!  Let me know how your students get on by commenting below.
