What-If Implementations in Minecraft (WHIMC) is a NSF research project conducted by an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in support from the local Makerspace and  collaborators across other universities & museums.

WHIMC’s goal is to give learners the opportunity to interactively explore the scientific consequences of alternative versions of Earth via “what if?” questions, such as “What if the earth had no moon?” or “What if the earth were twice its current size?” Click here to learn more.
