This one day opportunity is inspired by the exhibition A Greek in Egypt: the Hunter from Naukratis. Children will create their imagined temples to Egyptian and Greek Gods in a partially pre-built virtual site.

There will be three sessions, and each session will last 90 minutes. There is a 30 minute introduction to the exhibition with activities to help the children gather knowledge and get ready to build!

The introductions to the exhibition are led by our own learning team and the Minecraft activity facilitated by The European Gaming League .

Please note, in each workshop, pupils will be working together in pairs using a PC version of Minecraft. No prior knowledge of Minecraft or historical knowledge is needed.
