Minecraft has an Education Edition. It is an educational version of Minecraft which is specifically designed for classroom use. This edition has features which can make Minecraft easy to use in a classroom setting. This Minecraft Education Edition is being developed by Mojang Studios and Xbox Game Studios and on November 1st, 2016, the full game was released.
You are able to make an item in the Minecraft Education Edition by using the Lab Table. You can activate it by right clicking on it like a regular crafting table. Then, you are able to make products by adding the suitable type and number of elements and/ or compounds to the grid. If you are ready to conduct the experiment, you are able to click on the Combine button. Then, if you have finished creating a viable product, you will see that the images at the top will animate. It indicates that you have produced a liquid, gas or solid.
If you use a crafting table to make an item in Minecraft, you may know that you have to put the materials in the correct pattern. But, in Minecraft Education Edition, the location of the materials on the grid does not affect the result. If the process of creating the product is completed, then you will see the product appear after you click on the Combine. If the materials that you have combined did not create a viable product, the process will be in a garbage item. So, make sure that you use the correct recipes.
