National Highways is inspiring young people to learn about the range of rewarding careers that connect people around the country. We need a diverse workforce to build the roads of the future and we’re using Minecraft to translate the work we do in classrooms.
In the games, students will learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. They’ll see what it takes to build and maintain a road. And they can learn about protecting and improving biodiversity, conserving heritage for future generations to enjoy, creating new technology to make our roads safer, and operating machines to build one of the world’s largest tunnels.
The games offer a fun way for key stage 2 (ages 7-11) and key stage 3 (ages 11-14) to learn, and we have everything teachers will need including lesson plans and game guides. Teachers just need access to Minecraft Education Edition, which is commonly used in schools. There are also opportunities for our team to come out and run Minecraft workshops for students.
