It goes without saying that the world is a very different place right now. As millions and millions of people across the world are staying home and avoiding social contact to prevent further spread of Covid-19, companies are beginning to find ways to offer additional content at home.
Enter Xbox Head Phil Spencer who today announced that a new Educational Category is being added for free to Minecraft which will be available through June 30th.
The educational content we’ve curated lets players explore the International Space Station though a partnership with NASA, learn to code with a robot, visit famous Washington D.C. landmarks, find and build 3D fractals, learn what it’s like to be a marine biologist, and so much more. This is launching for free download today and will be available through June 30, 2020.

Quite frankly this is excellent and we hope more and more companies begin to offer more content, particularly for families and those with young children, during these trying times. Bravo Xbox team!
