Minecraft Adventure at iPic Pike & Rose Saturday: Big Screen Gaming!


Tomorrow, Saturday October 1, your Minecraft-loving kids can experience Minecraft in the most exciting way possible: on the big screen of a movie theater. Minecraft Adventure reinforces STEM educational concepts, encourages creativity, and promotes teambuilding and sociability. Parents can attend for free, and every participant receives a free Super League t-shirt! And just for readers of A Parent in Silver Spring, there is a code for 25 percent off the $20 ticket price.

This experience is brought to the DMV by Super League Gaming, the first and biggest recreational league where gamers of all ages compete, socialize and play video games on the big screen in movie theaters worldwide.

Super League Gaming takes uber-popular Minecraft and turns it into a social experience. Kids meet other kids with similar interests and get to show off their Minecraft skills.

Kids need to bring a laptop (not a tablet or phone) with Minecraft version 1.10 installed to join in the fun. 

The first event is this Saturday at iPic Pike & Rose (what an awesome space for the kids, by the way — I love those luxe reclining chairs!) and spaces remain.
