Description

Roblox Camp teaches kids to build games on the Roblox online game platform and game creation system developed by Roblox Corporation with a curriculum crated by UCode.


Roblox allows players to create their own games using its proprietary engine, Roblox Studio, which can then be played by other users. Games are coded under an object-oriented programming system utilizing a dialect of the programming language Lua to manipulate the environment of the game. The challenge is that kids don't really learn to code….. they learn to use templated code and blocks to build their games.


We would rather see them learn to actually code. So, we have developed a curriculum that uses native Lua in a IDE and that introduces the foundational concepts of coding – like loops, conditional statements, order of operations, etc.


But given that many of our students build games on Roblox, we are using a workshop format where students can bring their games and review them with a UCode Instructor with a goal of building an OUSTANDING game. Each day a new concept will be introduced with worksheets and quizzes, but its SUMMER and we all need to have some Fun. It has been a long year.


Parents please please note this is not a formal UCode “course”. There are no tests, no quizzes. (Yes, we know that is not very UCode like). This is pure supervised creative energy and a lot of hands on learning. If your student does have a game they are working on or an idea for a game then bring it on! If they have no prior experience, don’t worry. Join in the Fun!


Please note that at the end of each session, one stdent will be awarded a merit Scholarshp to attend the UCode Unity Course for 20 weeks. You show us some real talent and we will help you get to the next level.
