This course is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language.
Learn to code using your favourite gaming platform and develop fun Roblox games. Our Lua based code editor is particularly suitable for this age group because it is really easy to use and can be built up to more text-heavy coding once you get comfortable with the basics.
This camp is a great introduction to both fundamental computer aided design and the Lua programming language. Lua is widely used as a scripting language by game developers across the world.
By the end of the course, the students will be comfortable programming and creating Roblox games and will have published at least one game on to Roblox, which could end up helping them make lots of Robux!
- Design a Roblox game in Roblox Studio
- Learn Lua syntax and use it to script your game
- Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
- Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
- Create and use functions
- Use all of the above to make a super cool game
