FAQ:
Q) I have multiple kids joining the same event from home, do they need their own devices?
A) To collaborate, discuss, or interact in the virtual meeting, they can participate with one device, together. If each child wants to participate individually in the build challenge, they’ll need a separate device.
Q) I don’t own Minecraft, where can I purchase and download it?
A) Visit https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/get-minecraft for more information or if you are using a console, visit the digital store.
Q) Are participants playing in the same world (server)?
A) No, each Minecraft account is connected to the single, individual player. This means only the participant can view and interact in their own world. This also means the Microsoft facilitators and other attendees cannot view their projects or enter their worlds.
Q) I have a console do I need additional subscriptions to participate in the Build Challenge?
A) Because the participants are playing the single-player mode, they do not need additional subscriptions.
