A village is threatened by fire and needs you to code a solution! Meet your coding helper, the Minecraft Agent, then program the Agent to navigate the forest and collect data. This data will help the Agent predict where fires will occur. Then code the Agent to help prevent the spread of fire, save the village, and bring life back into the forest. Learn the basics of coding and explore a real-world example of artificial intelligence (AI).
