Fourth-graders at St. James Elementary School had an up-close and personal experience in the world of Minecraft thanks to a special Skype session on Dec. 12.

Student in Robin Baker’s and Tracy McAlvin’s classes spent more than an hour on Skype with Lydia Winters, Mojang’s brand director at the Minecraft headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. Students met some of the writers and programmers of the game as well as take a virtual tour of the facility. After the tour, students asked questions about the game, the headquarters and the different jobs of the Minecraft employees. 

Winters also sent the class a Minecraft cube to take home.
