Build Roblox Worlds
This class gives students an introduction to programming with the wide open creativity of Roblox. Practice coding using variables, strings, boolean logic, if-statements, loops, and functions; all while applying the concepts with class projects you can modify.
Roblox is a user-generated game sharing platform. That sounds complex, but think of Roblox like YouTube for the games world. Just as YouTube allows users to either watch videos made by others or upload videos themselves, Roblox gives players the ability to create their own games or simply play games made by others.
The class is open to students who are brand new to coding and those with coding experience. Students bring their own laptop (Windows or Mac, no Chromebooks), or rent a laptop to use during class for a one time fee. Simply bring your own Roblox login.
Lua is beginner-friendly and easy to read like Python. It's free, open-sourced, and fast making it popular among game developers. Lua is often used as a plugin language for applications and numerous games including Angry Birds, Civilization, and Star Wars Battlefront. A perfect fit for Roblox!
