    What is “Roblox Lua” and how do we use it to build our games?

    In this course, students will design, code and play their own 3D worlds with Roblox Studio! Students code using the programming language Lua which is currently the leading scripting language used in games. Roblox’s special version of this language – Roblox Lua, enhances the experience as students manipulate environments and program while having fun.

    From Obbys (obstacle courses) to creating Simulator Games, our Roblox Studio Code course has something for all Roblox lovers.

    Students will be able to publish the games they make to Roblox, so they can share with their friends why Roblox Lua is so awesome!

    By the end, students will have the skillset to take their Roblox knowledge to the next level and start making projects on their own.

    Level 1: ​Introduction to Roblox Studio and its many tools. Students begin their dive into Roblox Lua and how it helps express game functionality. Projects touch on various topics – from how to build a tower, dialog between characters, making signs, start buttons, to moving platforms. At this level, students create an Obby (obstacle course) where they put their fresh programming skills to the test!

    Level 2: ​Expanding on their Roblox Studio and Roblox Lua knowledge, the characters here engage in longer conversation. Students work on character design and code a Story Game that comes to life in a desert. As well as learn about loading screens and what it takes to build a Soccer Game.

    Level 3: Simulator Games are quite popular. At this level, the whole process of making one is broken down and explored from beginning to end. From ServerScriptService to dealing with RemoteEvent students dive into an environment that challenges them, as they also participate in a series of experiments which explores different types of loops.

    Examples of student projects:

    CodeAdvantage Cheese Tower; Code West; Experiments

    It is HIGHLY recommended students have a mouse for this class. It is very difficult to use Roblox tools with only a trackpad.

    Please be advised: If you have not taken the previous level with CodeAdvantage, make sure your child has received 10+ hours of instruction in the previous level before registering. Your child may need to be moved to a more appropriately paced class.
