Just like Minecraft, the Minetest game is extended by adding on "mods". Mods are extra bits of computer program that make the Minetest game do something new, and hopefully interesting.
There are two mods that you'll need to install for the November 2014 CoderDojo:
- Fireworks - https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10046
- Mesecons - http://mesecons.net/downloads.php
Here's a video showing an example of how to install mods. It shows how to use Linux, but the same ideas work for Mac and Windows. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgNlvZv0znw
