Temporary educational content for Minecraft is available today. Publisher Microsoft recently announced this.

After the coronavirus outbreak, almost all schools in the world are closed to prevent the spread of the virus. Parents should now oversee their children’s education and Microsoft has decided to lend a helping hand. The tech giant has announced that free education content for the popular sandbox game is coming to Minecraft starting today.

The content will soon be available in Minecraft’s online store, where everything can be downloaded for free. For example, parents or studious Minecraft players can explore space in a NASA spaceship, learn to code with a robot, visit the 30 most important places in the United States, or learn about marine biology.

These education packs are released today in the Minecraft Marketplace. The packages remain available until June 30.

Earlier, the Polish government also created an educational Minecraft server to keep children busy. Read more about this here.
