VIDEO: View Downtown Winnipeg in the World of Minecraft

Ever wonder what Winnipeg would look like in Minecraft? Wonder no more!

In Level Up: Winnipeg, local students can explore the Downtown Winnipeg area and visit block versions of recognizable landmarks, such as Old Market Square and Circle of Life Thunderbird House. They’ll learn about the area’s past, present, and future with the help of tour guides, including Mayor Gillingham and Murray Peterson.

The City has partnered with all of Winnipeg’s six school divisions (Louis Riel , Pembina Trails, River East Transcona, Seven Oaks, St. James-Assiniboia, Winnipeg), as well as the Division scolaire franco-manitobaine, Lord Selkirk School Division, Balmoral Hall, Microsoft Canada, and Minecraft: Education Edition to launch Level Up: Winnipeg.

Students from all grade levels are encouraged to play until May 26, 2023. If your child’s school isn’t participating, they can still take part. Download Minecraft Education on your device and explore the world on your own. You will need to login using your child’s school login credentials. You can also access the world in New & Featured worlds section.
