Course Overview

This fantastic course is based on the amazingly popular Roblox platform, and introduces budding young designers and developers to the principles of practical game design & development, world building and Lua programming.

By the end of the course they will have created their own unique Roblox games and published them to the Internet for anyone to play.

Students will first be introduced to Roblox and to Roblox Studio as a platform for creating games. They will build an obstacle course (Obby) game and publish their game for others to play. Next, students will meet programming concepts using Lua, creating custom interactive obstacles for their Obby game.

Using Roblox terrain editor tools, students will then build a basic RPG where they can explore a custom built world and harvest the items they have created.

Students will now create a racing game where they will design and code custom cars that they can use to race against their friends. With this experience, they are free to experiment and publish new additions to their games and have a showcase where they can play each others’ final games.

This course is designed for students aged 9-12 who may or may not have programmed previously. Some may have already played Roblox games, or even made their own. Others may have experience with different game engines or programming languages, whilst there may be some for whom game development and programming is a completely new endeavour.

EDUCATORS: Request an after school club for your students.

“I’ve always wanted to create an #APP that did restaurant reviews. And I finally got the chance to do it. It was so exciting. Maybe one day I’ll compete with Uber Eats”
