What is hacking in Minecraft?

Minecraft is a game that can be used to explore students’ creativity and imagination.  Hacking and modding takes it one step further and challenges a students’ creativity to go beyond what already exists in the world of Minecraft.  We will use Gimp, a graphics editor used to create and edit skins and textures.
