BESThq Building Opportunities Through Minecraft

I have not played Minecraft, but I am learning there is great value in this creative and interactive online game.  According to, Minecraft is a “game about placing blocks and going on adventures” and players are given unlimited resources to build whatever they can imagine.  Players invite friends anywhere in the world to join their Realm and participate in the creation of their project where the sky is the limit!  What a great way to connect, learn, and create in a team environment for all ages and abilities!

Minecraft is also making strides by developing interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), and because of a local Minecraft program developed by BESThq in Beaverton, a unique job opportunity has been created.

BESThq and their unique customized position will be featured during the educational breakout sessions at the 3rd Annual Amplify! Success event, October 16th, 1:00-5:00PM at Nike WHQ in Beaverton. “The Benefits of Disability Inclusion in The Workforce” theme will weave throughout the inspiring and informational program. Register today to learn how employers like BESThq are reaping the benefits of inclusion by matching skill sets to their business needs, affecting their culture and bottom line.
