  • Familiarity with block based coding in Scratch or similar platforms is required.

Roblox is a great way for friends to hangout together. But don’t stop there, take a big step forward with your Roblox experience by actually creating your own games and learning! For students who already have some experience with block-based coding systems such as Scratch and (ideally) Python, Roblox Studio is a great next step.

Coding is done via Lua, a scripting language that is relatively easy to use. The course starts with simple coding concepts such as loop and conditional to get students familiar with text-based coding, and gradually goes deeper to more advanced concepts such as variables, arrays, and more. Some highlights are:

– Roblox Studio workspace, objects, and how to configure properties of objects such as color and texture
– Basic concepts about coding Lua, the text-based scripting language used in Roblox, such as conditional, loops, and variable concepts
– How to build multiplayer games so they can invite their friends to play their games together – which is both fun and motivating
– More advanced Lua scripting concepts such as functions, event handling, and tables, while continuing to reinforce previous programming concepts
– Enable multiplayer games where players interact with in-game characters with some simple intelligence

We will be spending a lot of time in every class applying newly acquired coding skills to build fun mini-games. By the end of course, your child will have a small portfolio of games to play and to keep improving after the class.
