History Makers

Minecraft Server: hullcraft.nitrous.it

This was the project that launched HullCraft back in 2014. Joel Mills, form the TEL team at the University of Hull, asked people who attended family fun days at the Hull History Centre to build the work of Architect Francis Johnson in Minecraft. We wanted Minecrafters of all ages and experience to download one of the plans or drawings from our archive and try to recreate it in Minecraft.

3-1 St Christopher Holmewood Church, Bradford

The family fun days run by the Hull History Centre were celebrating the work of Francis Johnson by encouraging creativity through drawing, design and Lego building.

Participants were asked to download digitised plans from the website and recreate Francis Johnson’s buildings in Minecraft. As a reward for creating one of FJ’s buildings, they were given a Digital Badge that they could add to a mozilla backpack.
