Roblox Game Design
Learn professional programming in Lua as you create your own playable games
Roblox is one of the most popular gaming platforms on the planet for children and teens. Make the move from playing games to creating them, by learning about 3D design, animation, coding, lighting and more in a course where you'll make your own games that you can play with friends.
We run many of the same topics with both the junior and senior age groups, including learning LUA scripting (coding), but extend the senior groups topics to more advanced concepts including monetization of game assets (how to earn money from your games).

Roblox Game Design In Detail
Roblox Game Design will teach you about creating your own games from scratch using Roblox Studio. You’ll delve into LUA scripting, animation, event-based programming, physics engines and much more as you learn how to make an immersive gaming experience.
Along the way you’ll create several games including Obbys (obstacle courses), driving simulators, and FPS games including a ‘Battle Royale’. You’ll even learn how to monetize your game assets if you’d like to turn your creations into commercial profit-generating games.Our Tutors
We've brought together the best of our tutors to instruct and help the students. They're typically recent graduates or undergraduates studying Engineering or Computer Science at leading Russell-group Universities. Of course they're chosen for their communication and technical skills and have Enhanced DBS checks for working with children.
Engaging learning must be hands-on. Our 'At Home' programme offer a mix of video tutoring, collaborative learning and self-paced project work during and after the session to make sure that learning is deep, engaging and lasting.
At 4:30pm the Sunday before we’ll have a quick Zoom call, just to check everything is working ahead of our first lesson on Monday. Make sure you have a working webcam and audio system (microphone and speakers or a headset). All modern laptops (whether PC or Mac) have these inbuilt.
On the day, you’ll just need to click on the meeting link to join the meeting. It’s that easy! Your Tech Camp-certified tutor will be there with the rest of your classmates ready for the session to begin.
If you have any queries between the sessions we are only an email away! Feel free to ask us any questions and we'll help out if we can.
The online course was great and the tutor engaged with the children and helped them calmly and effectively - we were not needed at all. My son really enjoyed the course and did all of the extra challenges too.
