RVS Students Participate in Level Up Calgary Minecraft Design Challenge

Posted on

Rocky View Schools is pleased to announce our division winners of Level Up Calgary Season Three: Parks & Portals:

  • Division 1: Alexis Paul – Northcott Prairie School
  • Division 2: Emma Turner & Ila Reinbold – École Edwards Elementary School
  • Division 3: Cole Saelhof, Temi Baiyewu, & Micah Rozema – Northcott Prairie School
  • Division 4: Hailey Baker & Lexy Williams – Bow Valley High School

“We are very proud of the hard work demonstrated by students and teachers who unleased their creativity during this design challenge,” said Superintendent of Schools, Greg Luterbach. “Level Up Calgary provides students an opportunity to use a platform many already enjoy using in their personal time and utilize it for educational purposes as they connect to the curriculum. Best of all, students have fun while they learn!”

Now in its third year, Level Up Calgary is an annual design challenge using Minecraft Education hosted by the City of Calgary. Working in a virtual rendering of downtown Calgary, students select a site, review a challenge prompt and build. This season focused on crafting safe, accessible and inclusive public spaces in Haultine Park and the Green Line 4th Street Station that celebrate diversity, foster equity and promote unity. This is the second year RVS has been invited to participate in Level Up Calgary.

Winners from RVS were recognized at a ceremony in Calgary on June 11, along with winners from the Calgary Board of Education.

“RVS is honoured to have once again taken part in Level Up Calgary,” said Board Chair, Fiona Gilbert. “The digital spaces created by our students showcase the innovation and creativity that we value as a school division and hope to instill in all our learners.”

Congratulations to our RVS winners, as well as the 10 finalists from our division and our teachers who supported this innovative learning.
