    About us


    TeacherGaming is an independent game development company of teachers and developers based in the United States and Finland. Our mission is to expand game-based learning into classrooms worldwide. From the very beginning we wanted to make something completely different from traditional learning games and began by modifying Minecraft to meet the needs of teachers.

    We quickly realized that there was a great demand for this type of product. Since programming and computational thinking are becoming more and more important skills in the 21st century we decided to take it even further. We teamed up with an awesome modder Dan200 to use his mod ComputerCraft as an introduction to coding. The result was ComputerCraftEdu, which we are proudly presenting on this website!

    We haven’t stopped there either: entertainment games have a lot of potential in education and our focus as a company is now in repurposing entertainment games for educational setting. In 2014 we launched our second game, KerbalEdu.
