Coding ya adadadad

Let's face it, kids LOVE video games. So why not turn that love into something much more productive! We’ll teach them story development and solution planning, game mechanics, design thinking, 3D modeling, and fundamentals of coding languages such as Java, C++, Python and Lua—all valuable skillsets in today's technological world. Wait until you see their creative genius at work!

Coding Classes

Roblox is one of the world’s largest social technology platforms. But did you know that all Roblox games are created by the players? Students will learn to use Roblox Studio to create and code their own platformers, action, adventure, and racing games with moving platforms, power-ups, visual effects, a lives system, and of course, trap parts. Advanced students dive into more complex Lua coding, multiplayer development, and explore monetizing upgrades.

 

​A free Roblox account is required for these classes.

 

We love when our makers continue working on their new skills at home. Roblox Studio is a free software program you can install, if you choose, on your home computer, so your student can continue building and learning even after class is over. Please review home computer requirements for Roblox Studio here.
