How to glue in Minecraft: Education Edition


Minecraft: Education Edition lets players experience the wonders of science, especially chemistry and the creation of compounds like soap, ammonia, and even glue, everyone’s favorite adhesive.

Glue, also known as cyanoacrylate or C5H5NO2 (the main component of many glues), can be made by using the compound creator block and combining the right amount of elements together.

Chemistry, elemental compounds, and the elements that make up the material world are a huge draw in Minecraft: Education Edition (Image via Mojang).

The compound creator’s GUI might seem confusing at first, but it’s actually pretty straightforward. By placing items obtained from blocks such as the item builder or material reducer in the center slots, different compounds can be made and removed from the exit slot on the right.

With this in mind, one can wonder about the right elements to create glue. If we go back to the chemical formula of cyanoacrylate, they have their answer. The C5H5NO2 formula details the exact items needed in Minecraft: Education Edition to craft the Sticky Compound. This can be found broken down below:

  • 5 Carbon (C)
  • 5 Hydrogen (H)
  • 1 Nitrogen (N)
  • 2 Oxygen (O)

By combining these items with the exact amounts in the Compound Creator, Minecraft players can create glue. At the moment, the compound doesn’t have much use, but Education Edition is really about the process of combining these elements to achieve the desired result.

By learning things like molecules, atoms, elements, and elemental compounds, Minecraft players can gain useful scientific information that translates into the real world around us.

That’s not to say that all of the compounds in Minecraft: Education Edition are unusable, as players can use items and compounds to create fun items such as balloons (helium, latex, dyes, and lead) or glow sticks ( polyethylene, hydrogen peroxide, colorant, Luminol).

Players can even craft regular Minecraft items in the Compound Creator, such as Charcoal (C7H4O), Squid Ink Bags (FeSO4), Sugar (C6H12O6), or just plain old water (H20) . In total, Minecraft: Education Edition has over 30 compounds that players can craft and experience.
