What Students Learn

Our Game Design courses teach students how to create their own video games. They’ll design levels, characters, and full games using game creation tools. Our Game Design with Roblox course allows students to create 3D platforming based games using editing tools like Roblox Studio and programming with Lua. Students will work in teams to make environments, textures, and scripts to create a full game experience.

The Adventures Experience: In this unique course for 9 to 12-year-olds, students will design games and assets and then learn to market them using the Roblox Marketplace. The Roblox Marketplace contains community-made items that other users can incorporate into their own games and creations.
