Daily Roblox Sessions
Each day they’ll “work” in Roblox while making new friends, exploring game design, and learning the building blocks of coding from an expert instructor.
Day One: Scripts, Variables, & Customizing Worlds On Monday, campers will learn to customize the look and feel of Roblox worlds and characters while exploring the foundations of coding: scripts, variables, and basic program functions.
Day Two: Functions & Game Events On Tuesday, campers will learn to code interactivity by setting If-Then conditions to create events and outcomes.
Day Three: Loops & Advanced Gameplay On Wednesday, campers will see how programming loops can create a never ending series of events and actions.
Day Four: Arrays & Character Development On Thursday, campers will explore the art of data management by using arrays to store and use detailed character information.
Day Five: Game Design Challenge On Friday, campers will put their newfound knowledge and experience to work, creating Roblox mini-games they can play with fellow campers all summer long.
Small Groups, Expert Instructors
Camp sessions feature small groups of 6-9 campers led by an expert instructor, ensuring maximum participation, guidance, and collaboration. Instructors are chosen after an extensive vetting process that includes teaching demonstrations, background checks, and interviews to ensure both subject mastery and teaching ability.
