Virtual: Coding with Roblox

Coding with RobloxCODING is the process of creating instructions for computers to follow. Students will be digging deeper into the coding aspects of the Roblox, also they will create scripts to give the game sets of instructions and rules, also they will learn about the variables in coding. Students learn to create New Scripts in Roblox and over time, the knowledge of coding will become more and more complex and allow them to write out full scripts of Lua code.

Class requirements:

  • A PC or Mac computer. Roblox cannot run on Chromebooks or mobile devices such as smartphones
  • Internet access. This allows us to keep the software up to date and gives you the opportunity to save your projects to your Roblox account
