What you'll learn in this kids programming class:

Get the real game jam experience and bring your Roblox ideas to life! A game jam is a kind of “hackathon” for video games, where a small team of developers challenge themselves to design and create a game in a very short period of time. In the game jam spirit of rapid prototyping and design iteration, campers will have the opportunity to build a Roblox game of their own invention in just one week. We’ll begin with some quick tutorials to learn the ropes of Roblox Studio, including object modeling, terrain generation and coding for common game mechanics like power-ups, hazards and goals. From there, campers will work in pairs or small groups to go through the complete game jam process -- brainstorm, outline, build, code, and playtest.


Sample Projects

Build a 3D World

Campers will use Roblox Studio’s terrain editor to generate and sculpt a landscape for their game world. With the foundation built, campers will then create and customize all kinds of in-game structures, interactable objects and decorations.

Campers will learn the fundamentals of 3D modeling, starting with the more “sculpting” style of the terrain editor and then moving on to solid modeling concepts like rotation, scale, union, negation, and more.

Program Custom Mechanics

Once the game’s 3D environment is built, campers will use the Lua programming language to define the rules and mechanics of their games.

Campers will learn the fundamentals of computer science; from functions and variables to loops, conditionals, data types, and more.

Complete the Game Jam

After a few days of guided tutorials, campers will be free to invent and build a Roblox game of their own design. Instructors will then continue to guide and teach each group on topics and techniques relevant to their custom project ideas.

In addition to the continued development of their 3D modeling and programming skills, campers will learn about and practice 21st Century and SEL skills like initiative, communication, collaboration, task management, and goal-setting.
