Does your kid love Roblox? With this coding class, your child will be able to create their own games for Roblox in no time. The coding approach is similar to Scratch, but is tailored specifically for developing Roblox games. It is a lot more effective for younger students compared to using Lua. Your child will learn and practice advanced coding skills, apply their imaginations, and create!

Learn how to make games in Roblox
Join this fun free intro class to get a taste of what creating Roblox games is like, and start learning Roblox coding! This class is designed for students who have not had any prior experience with Roblox Studio, the official tool for building Roblox games. We help students install and activate Roblox Studio, and go through a step-by-step tutorial to build an interactive Obby game with different shapes, colors, and materials!
Due to the popularity of this free class, there might be more than five students per intro class. Please note that the full course has a cap at five students maximum to ensure ample attention is provided to each student. We require parents stay with their child for students younger than 10 to help navigate Roblox Studio in this intro class, as the tool is complex to use for young students initially. If you've already taken our other free Roblox intro class you do not need to take this class.
If you are relatively new to coding, we highly recommend you complete the Scratch Coding classes first to get the most out of Roblox coding classes.
In this first part we introduce the basics of Roblox coding through building fun games! Most students have not interacted with complex coding environments such as Roblox Studio before, so we will ensure they are setup for success by teaching foundational skills. This includes how to use workspace and how to configure properties of objects such as color and texture to implement in games. We will start learning important coding concepts such as if/then, loop, and variable in the context of Roblox coding, as well as how to have game elements respond to interactions from players such as clicks, movements, and more!
The fun and learning continues in part 2 of this Roblox game development class. Activities to take place in this part include finishing the dodgeball game started in part 1, learning how to use clones to easily create many game objects, and learning how to create a multiplayer game! Students are welcome to invite their friends to play the multiplayer games together, and there will be a leaderboard for added motivation. This part will also dive deeper into Roblox coding concepts to become more familiar with the nuances of Roblox coding while reinforcing skills learned in part 1.
In the final part for this class we will focus on building two multi-faceted games that combine previous Roblox coding skills learned with new concepts like messaging. One of the games is modeled after the highly popular infinity run game where players must turn, dodge, and jump to avoid obstacles and gain points. Students will also learn how to create quiz games about any topic they're interested in to showcase their knowledge on what they're passionate about. We look forward to seeing your child's creativity shine as they learn how to code Roblox games!
