Wales Coastal Monitoring Centre - A Welsh Government funded organisation based in the Vale of Glamorgan, focusing on the monitoring of Welsh coastlines with regard to erosion, flood risk and coastal defences. As part of their programme, they are currently developing a series of lessons to be delivered within Primary schools across Wales educating children on the impacts of climate change, coastal erosion and flooding. To support the project, you will build a Minecraft for Education world that will include lessons about coastal defences and allow the pupils plan and build their own strategy based on what they had learnt. Pupils should be able to build their own coastal defences to protect a village. The MC world should be accompanied by associated teaching resources such as Scheme of Works, Lesson Plans and workbooks.
