Minecraft: Education Edition coming to iPad in September
Microsoft has just announced that Minecraft: Education Edition will finally make its debut on iPad next month. The game will be available to those schools that are licensed through Microsoft 365 for Education. Minecraft will be available for download from September for free, so there are no extra payments involved.

According to Microsoft's Kyriakos Koursaris, Head of Education Technology for PaRK International School, Minecraft: Education Edition on iPad is meant to further revolutionize the way students and teachers use curriculum and projects.


On top of that, Microsoft announced that every owner of Minecraft for Windows 10 and Xbox will be able to use the Chemistry Resource Pack, which was originally released for Minecraft: Education Edition.

For those unaware, the Chemistry Resource Pack adds lab tables, element block, and items that are craftable only using the new chemistry features. The new pack should allow players create elements and combine them into compounds, as well as combine materials using chemistry and make new items like latex, underwater torches, or even helium balloons.

The Chemistry Resource Pack can be enabled from the “Education” toggle that can be found in the “Create New World” option, under the “Cheats” menu in the game.

This is a very nice idea. Bringing chemistry into a platform like this will grab the attention of many kids and will probably stick with them more.
