Discover Work

In the “Discover Work” challenge, the players get to embody people who used to practice professions that are now extinct. In this challenge, you need to take on the roles of: “The Knocker Upper”, “The Switch Board Operator” and “The Sponge Harvester”, in order to fix the space-time continuum. All the 3 challenges are different in their nature, since they take advantage of different capabilities of the Minecraft engine. This course aims to promote gender equality and provide contextualization for history events.
