Game Design With Roblox (Part 2)– Ages 9-13

This is part 2 of the Game Design With Roblox classes that I offer for Ages 9-13. Students should take part 1 first as this class builds on what students learned in the previous beginner class, and it assumes they have a working knowledge of basic scripting and Roblox Studio tools.

Take what you learned in Roblox Part 1 to the next level to create an adventure game where you have to solve puzzles, unlock surprises, and use tools. Learn how to use the terrain editor and build basic models to create the ultimate game environment.

Technology Requirements:

A Roblox account is required for this program. An account is free and can be setup at https://www.roblox.com/.

Students must download the Roblox Studio program to their Mac or PC to be able to create their games. This program is free and can be downloaded at https://www.roblox.com/create.

In this class, students will learn to…

  • Customize terrain to create a game map with different landforms.
  • Join and shape simple parts to create more complex models.
  • Create challenges and puzzles in their game using variables and logic.
  • Use new game events to activate functions and actions.
  • Design and create a tool for their player.
  • Code a tool to perform an action in their game.

About The Instructor

Shawn D. Walk has been an educator for over 17 years. He was a 4th/5th grade teacher for 11 years at an elementary school north of Pittsburgh. During his time at that school, he focused on project-based learning and engaging students with real-world tasks that allowed them to see how what they were learning is used in the real world. He also developed a passion for technology and worked to include that in his teaching. Shawn developed several robotics and coding programs during his time as a teacher and helped students learn essential 21st century skills in a fun and exciting way.

About 5 years ago, He started a company in Pittsburgh that partnered with schools to offer coding, Minecraft, and other creative classes. The company was one of the first organizations in the Pittsburgh region to use Minecraft to create engaging programs for students. He now hopes to take this type of fun and creative learning beyond the Pittsburgh region to students all over the world.

Shawn has an active Pennsylvania Teaching Certification and a Masters Degree in education.  He looks forward to helping your child discover their creative powers.
