Enjoy fun Roblox courses for kids

Does your child love Roblox? There are 40 millions games on Roblox, and enjoying Roblox is great way for friends to hangout together. So why not go from playing to learning and creating, while having just as much fun? Take a big step forward with your Roblox experience by actually creating your own games! In this unique live interactive class, students will learn how to use Roblox Studio to create customized worlds and code mini-games.

For students who already have some experience with block-based coding systems such as Scratch, Roblox Studio is a great next step. Here, through a combination of configuring and scripting/coding, your child can create their own game world using a built-in 3D design tool and coding interactions with the world. 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. It is entirely project based, as we will be building fun games throughout.

  • This class is for students who have not had any experience with Roblox Studio before. We will lead students through the process of installing and activating Roblox Studio. Students will also finish a self-paced tutorial to create a simple interactive experience. Unlike most of our classes which have no more than 5 students per group, this class may include a larger number of students and is run more like an office hour. The teacher will walk through the process, do demos, and answer questions as needed. Join us, build your first Roblox game, and have fun!

  • We introduce the basics of Roblox coding while building fun games in this first part. Most students will probably not have interacted with complex coding environments such as Roblox Studio before, which has two big aspects to it: building and scripting. We will learn workspace, objects, and how to configure properties of objects such as color and texture. We will also start learning Lua, the text-based scripting language used in Roblox. This is often the first text-based coding for many kids. Students will learn how to code with Lua, and apply conditional, loops, and variable concepts.

  • One of the most powerful aspects of Roblox coding is the ability to create multiplayer game experiences quickly. In this part of our Roblox coding series, students learn how to build multiplayer games so they can invite their friends to play their games together - which is both fun and motivating! We will also go deeper with coding concepts in Lua scripting to learn functions and event handling, while continuing to reinforce previous programming concepts.

  • The learning and fun continue with part 3 of this Roblox coding class. We will move one big notch up to build two more fun games. You will learn how to create a little economy in your game by collecting goodies off a conveyor belt, earning coins, and exchanging for droppers and treasures. We will also learn how to build multiplayer games where players interact with in-game characters with some simple intelligence. We will cover advanced coding concepts such as tables, and fairly complex use of variables and functions.

Can Roblox be educational?

Yes Roblox can be educational, especially when learned through coding courses and Roblox coding camps! Coding with Roblox Studio provides a way for anyone to be creative and build their skills as they create a fun game. Using the power of creativity, students can build games while learning real coding skills. Anyone from beginner to expert can build a game.

Does Roblox teach coding?

Yes Roblox is a great tool for teaching coding. By coding with Roblox Studio students can create projects even if they have never used a gaming platform before. Roblox also provides many sample projects to inspire creativity and new game development. We do recommend young students learn block based coding such as Scratch first before taking on Roblox. Older students however can begin with our free Roblox class.

My kid loves Roblox and wants to learn Roblox coding, how should we get started?

Roblox coding is a great way to keep students interested and while learning important coding skills. Depending on the age of the students and prior coding experience, there are two classes consider as the starting point - Beginner Roblox Game Coding for grades 3-8, and Coding with Roblox Studio in Lua (which is this class) for grades 6 and above.

If your child is new to coding, he/she should start with Scratch Coding, then do Beginner Roblox Game Coding.

Beginner Roblox Game Coding uses block based coding and it is much more intuitive for younger students to learn. Coding with Roblox Studio in Lua uses Lua, a text based scripting languages. Both classes uses Roblox Studio, the official platform for developing Roblox Games.

For students who are interested in Coding with Roblox Studio in Lua, we highly recommend students learn Python coding first to gain foundational knowledge on text based coding first. It will help them learn Coding with Roblox Studio in Lua a lot more effectively as well.

In summery, the ideal learning path for students who are new to coding and are 6th grades or younger is:

Higher grade students can start with Python coding and then Coding with Roblox Studio in Lua.

Is Roblox coding hard?

Roblox coding is at medium difficulty level for kids to learn. For younger students (5th grade or younger), students should have a thorough understanding of Scratch coding first, and ideally a couple of other block coding systems, before doing Roblox coding, You can learn it before learning Python or Javascript, although knowing basic Python will help you get the most out of Roblox coding also. Roblox is a platform where students can design their own game. To get started, students start with a simple install of the platform, then they quickly learn a programming language call Lua to code and share their games in Roblox. With Create & Learn's Coding with Roblox Studio, students will enjoy personalized attention from an instructor in real-time over live chat video, making the barrier to entry as low as possible.

What type of coding does Roblox use?

Roblox uses the easy-to-learn programming language Lua. This language is used often in game and web design. Lua can be embedded into other programs like games.
