Level up, Calgary! Community Reimagined, Reconfigured, Revitalized 

Coming Fall 2021!

The CBE is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Microsoft, The City of Calgary, and The Calgary Public Library (CPL). Through this partnership, the CBE will deliver an engaging and immersive educational opportunity for all CBE students that leverages the power of Minecraft: Education Edition.

Beginning October 8, 2021, CBE is launching a system-wide Minecraft Design Challenge providing students with an opportunity to navigate through a customized virtual representation of downtown Calgary, interacting with experts as they consider, “How might we reimagine our public spaces to enrich the lives of Calgarians and strengthen our community?” 

​As teachers plan interdisciplinary tasks connected to the Alberta Program of Studies, students will build virtual proposals in Minecraft: Education Edition encapsulating their vision for Calgary’s future.  These proposals will then be submitted for consideration by a panel of City of Calgary experts.
