Some people say that learning to program a computer can teach you how to think. Some of the benefits of coding are the development of structured and creative thinking, it can make things easier for you at your job, and by learning to code you learn persistence. I would say that being able to program a computer is the closest thing to having superpowers. Why use Minecraft, a popular game, to teach coding? Simply, most coding courses rely on uninteresting problems to practice learned concepts. Some examples are the classic temperature conversion, the calculation of Fibonacci numbers or factorials, etc. Many learners will feel that there is no point in solving such problems, which might affect motivation. Games like Minecraft are a different story, as they allow you to use the learned coding skills to manipulate elements of the game, get immediate visual feedback, and get a nice rush of dopamine.
