Joseph Palmer is a director of BlockBuilders Ltd which he cofounded with Megan Leckie in 2014. BlockBuilders is a company that uses Minecraft to engage young people in the planning and development of their community and environmental education.

The session concludes with a panel discussion exploring the opportunities Minecraft can offer, that traditional education methods may not.
