Level Up Season 3 – Connecting students to infrastructure through Minecraft Education

Level Up Calgary Season 3: Parks & Portals had students unlocking their creativity and innovation by transforming some of Calgary’s public spaces in Minecraft. In collaboration with The City, the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) and Microsoft, students were tasked with designing two downtown sites in Minecraft: Haultain Park and Green Line’s future 4 Street Station. 

The Green Line LRT will be both a transit system and a platform for future city building opportunities. It encourages accessible redevelopment and investment in Calgary’s businesses and communities. Participating students were challenged with designing an inclusive and accessible portal for the 4 Street S.E. Station, which will connect transit riders to vibrant communities in the Beltline, East Village and the Culture + Entertainment District.

Level Up Calgary is more than a design challenge, it is an opportunity for students to develop essential skills and leadership qualities, empowering future leaders and changemakers in our community. The students developed unique designs that seamlessly integrated the 4 Street S.E. Station into public spaces, while keeping in mind accessibility and community integration.
