Josh Brauer, a senior Lewis University computer science major and an officer in the Prometheon Technology Club, gave an engaging presentation on advanced Minecraft construction.
The Plainfield resident demonstrated a level he built that contained multiple complicated structures.
“One feature of his level was a room that included implementations of AND, OR, NOT, and XOR gates, demonstrating how rich a programming environment Minecraft can be. It is an example of how great software can be entertaining, educational, and a way to inspire and express creativity,” commented Dr. Ray Klump, chair and professor of Computer Science and Mathematics.
