About 'Skills Miner' Minecraft Game - An Enginuity Product
Enginuity (formerly Semta) and the Prince’s Trust have created an online game – powered by artificial intelligence – to identify people who have what it takes to power the nation’s economic recovery when the lockdown is lifted.
Skills Miner is part of Enginuity’s mission to create skills solutions for individuals, educators and employers to help close the skills gap in the engineering sector.
Sophisticated Artificial Intelligence algorithms monitor players’ performance and assess their aptitude for a whole raft of skills – from Observation and Assessment, Resilience, Digital Competency, Problem Solving and Critical Reasoning.
Players of the game, which is based on Minecraft and aimed at players of all ages, will be guided to various levels, given assessments of their cerebral and dexterity strengths – then given a call to action to help them make an appropriate move through the gateway from the virtual to the real world. It will help boost neurodiversity and reveal a myriad of vocational pathways to work in the real world.
What are the benefits of playing #SkillsMiner?
Play today and discover the limitless career pathways that engineering could open for learners.
TWO PROGRAMMES, ONE BOOK, LOTS OF FUN!
Brought to you by West Lothian Youth Foundation (WLYF), the Score with Maths and Smiley Miler At Home resource pack combines two popular schools programmes to help keep children engaged whilst at home.
WLYF understand that this is a difficult time for everybody as we live in these unusual circumstances; these activities and resources have been created with the aim of helping the West Lothian community.
Aimed at primary pupils, young people can learn a bit about health, exercise and maths but most importantly we hope they find the book fun!
We also encourage adults to get involved as much as possible and make it a family affair.
We would love for you to send pictures, videos and feedback of you getting involved. Remember to tag @WLYF4football @DYWWestLothian
