It’s on! INTERFACE Minecraft Student Competition entries open

(Last Updated On: November 9, 2023)

The competition has now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. We will reveal the results in our November magazine.

It’s on. Don’t miss out or you’ll be in trouble with your students! Get your blocks on the move as entries are now open for the INTERFACE Minecraft Student Competition 2023, ‘Build a Big Blue Future’. We’ve teamed up with the Marine Stewardship Council and your challenge is to create a new exhibit for the National Aquarium of New Zealand.

You choose the type of environment for the exhibit, which will help visitors to the National Aquarium to better understand marine life in and around our oceans.

It could be an enclosure for penguins, a refuge for an endangered species or a sea creature from the deep, a hands-on encounter for aquarium visitors, a display area for viewing … or whatever you choose. But you will need to make sure the animal’s needs can be met through your design!

There are three age categories to choose from and some great prizes. PLUS bragging rights as the best Minecrafters in the land!

Entries close end of Term 3 (Friday 22 September).
