Top 5 Things to Build in Minecraft: Education Edition in 2022

Minecraft: Education Edition is an adapted version of Bedrock Edition that focuses on engagement and learning in the classroom. However, it still retains many of the same features as its predecessors and even has some cool perks of its own.

Although Minecraft: Education Edition is largely limited to schools and learning facilities, it’s still possible to do more than a few builds in it. After all, the game itself still works very much like the Bedrock version, and they both use the same codebase.

Below, players can find some fun builds to build if they have access to the Education Edition.


Awesome Minecraft: Education Edition builds worth trying

5) The Parthenon

As part of a larger educational event run by Microsoft, Minecraft: Education Edition showcased various student builds. One of these was the Parthenon, a real-world temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena in the 5th century BC. It remains one of the most intact structures from ancient Greece, so it naturally presents itself as an entertaining as well as an educational building opportunity.

For this particular build, students used the game’s Code Builder feature to program their mobs of agents to help them acquire materials and place blocks.


4) The International Space Station

Undoubtedly one of mankind’s greatest achievements, the International Space Station exists as a downloadable build/map for Minecraft: Education Edition. Players can explore the station and even make their own additions while learning a few things about the conditions in space and how astronauts spend their time so far above the Earth’s surface.

No doubt this build has also inspired various players in the Education Edition and beyond to create their own space-friendly builds. For proof, look no further than the plethora of space mods players can download, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

While it’s entirely possible for students to create skyscrapers in Minecraft by hand, the Education Edition offers a new way to build them. Through the game’s coding functionality, players can learn to program their Agent to help them build the structures.

The Agent is exclusive to the Education Edition (although it can be spawned without AI in Bedrock). Since players use a visual coding language, you can perform a wide variety of simple tasks. With this coding method, players can build their skyscrapers for a town or city while the Agent helps them in various ways.

2) The Emerald City

The main Minecraft: Education Edition site often hosts challenges for educators and their students to complete. One example is the Story Setting Challenge, in which students were asked to create a setting from a written work of fiction. Teacher Gabi Ibarra’s class certainly rose to the occasion, as they created Yellow Brick Road and Emerald City from the iconic novel. The wonderful wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

Truly, this build is representative of what a small group of Minecraft builders can accomplish when they focus on one project.

Chemistry is one of the most important features of Minecraft: Education Edition. To better immerse students in the act of combining elements and creating intriguing items, the World of Chemistry was built.

This sprawling city features its own periodic table of elements to help players remember the elements that are in the game world and ours. Furthermore, it provides all the necessary building blocks for players to dive in and start enjoying chemistry on their own.

While this map was an official Mojang and Microsoft creation, it’s still incredibly impressive and may even inspire Minecraft players to create a world of their own focused on chemistry, coding, or one of the many other features unique to the version.
