Roblox is the largest social platform that allows students to create and play in immersive 3D worlds. With over 29 million user-generated online games, the platform has a massive outreach to students all over the world. More and more kids are excited to play games and try out all the Roblox features. Rather than just being consumers in the gaming industry, students will learn to be creators in this camp! This camp is an introduction to the world of game development. Using the Lua coding language, students will:
-Learn basic programming commands
-Create 3D worlds
-Expand characters/worlds using Lua functions
-Create custom actions and conditions
-Learn programming concepts like loops, conditionals, arrays, and inheritance
-Understand and execute proper privacy settings
-Understand and execute proper multi-player settings
This camp is designed for beginner and some intermediate users of Roblox. Students will spend the week getting familiar with the environment, dragging-and-dropping code to create actions, and then customizing it with Lua. Students will complete the week with multiple games that they can take home!
• Students will work individually on a laptop. We are able to provide laptops for all students. However, students are encouraged to bring their own laptop if they have one. This will allow them to more easily continue their learning after camp. We will help install proper software, which will allow campers to continue working on their projects once camp has ended. • Please pack your child a re-usable water bottle, 2-3 snacks to enjoy during snack break, and a bag lunch. Also, be sure to dress them in comfy shoes as we will be playing some games outside! • Optional extended care (AM & PM) and lunch is available with additional purchase at check out. • Want more info?
