NASEF Farmcraft®

NASEF Farmcraft® 2024 is an educational program that uses the popular game Minecraft to enhance understanding of the evolving agricultural industry and its impact on global food security. The program is open to all ages, but is designed to supplement the learning of students ranging from 8-18 years of age.

Farmcraft® 2024 is focused on the impact of digital technology on agricultural productivity.  Many of the agricultural productivity increases in the last few decades have directly resulted from the adaptation and adoption of digital technologies to farming!
