5 Awesome Roblox Studio Lessons


Roblox. A super fun single and multiplayer game that millions of kids play every day. I’ve known several children that the first thing they do after school is race to go play games with their friends on Roblox. And why wouldn’t they? It’s kid-friendly, fun, simple, and because of its modding tools, people can create and code all new experiences in the game! But what if a kid doesn’t know how to code, animate, or do any other skill necessary to develop your own games and modes in Roblox? Enter Roblox Studio! A robust and intuitive space for children to learn coding, game design, animating, storytelling, and so much more! It’s a free resource that educators and parents alike can download and use with their children.


Since it offers so many different and incredible lessons, I want to break down a few of my favourite ones! Let’s dive in!



Code Fundamentals


The first one I want to discuss is Code Fundamentals. This is a terrific place to start when your kid is venturing into the world of Roblox! However, this class is definitely a meaty one, as it clocks in at around ten hours. But it will teach the essential coding principles that kids can put into practice right away! They’ll be learning by building fun objects in the game world such as traps and power ups. With the fundamentals fully understood, kids can then get into some more exciting projects!



Coding Project: Battle Royale


One such exciting project is Battle Royale! If you’ve ever heard your kid talk about games such as Apex Legends, PUBG, and Fortnite, then you’ve heard about battle royal games. A select number of players start the game, and the last one left is the winner! This project teaches all sorts of essential coding skills and concepts while allowing a kid to design their very own battle royale! Once they’ve finished, they can even invite their friends and test it out!



Roblox Developer 101


If a child doesn’t know how to code just yet, and/or wants a basic overview of developing games, then this lesson plan is the perfect one! It covers some basic coding, 3D modelling, and gameplay design. All of the learning culminates in a fun obstacle course complete with different gameplay elements such as traps! Then after that, they get to bring even more concepts in and create an adventure game where players can explore, gather a medley of resources, and purchase items. Definitely a must for kids starting out!



Project: Create and Destroy


Another fantastic project is Create and Destroy. The students will be able to learn about world-building and think about design while creating a multiplayer map. On this map, the players will race to stomp on cities and buildings for points! Once they finish designing their map, your kid can then challenge their friend to an epic duel! It only takes a couple of hours, and no previous experience is necessary. If your child isn’t sure if they want to commit to a ten-hour coding course, this lesson provides a superb introduction to what Roblox Studio can do!



Project: Animate in Roblox


For those kids who aren’t as interested in coding and developing games, this class offers a crash course on animating! They’ll understand how the human body moves and how that can be translated into a game character. In addition, the student will pose their character and develop animations for them, such as swimming or skipping, that can then be used in a multiplayer game! Add this one to a couple of the above-mentioned classes, and your kid will be well on their way to building their very own video game or Roblox experience!
