Have fun this summer learning to code while making games in Roblox Studio. Students age 10-14 build 3D environments, write coding logic, and publish to Roblox to test and play with friends. The camp combines engaging projects with coding skills using the Lua programming language.
Students in grades 4th-8th can join and the camp is approachable by both beginning coders and fast learners with prior coding experience. Tuition is $445 for the week (early rate). There is a $150 deposit to hold a seat with the remaining balance to be paid before camp starts.
Two Locations: Camps are held at Oglethorpe university or in Decatur at a school near downtown. (map link)
Roblox Coding Camp 2020
July 27-31 (Decatur only)

Create Roblox games, write code in Lua, and publish them. This camp is for beginner to advanced learners in grades 4th-8th. There are no prerequisites other than a desire to learn and have fun. Our curriculum is flexible to the students’ skill level.
The summer camp mornings are spent learning about the development tools while building project-based lessons and fun game mods. Afternoons leave time for students to choose what they would like to work on and continue at their own pace. Of course there are also breaks to play modded games.
At Start Code, our small instructor to student ratio provides customized learning. Unlike other camps, our instructors have or are pursuing degrees in Computer Science and STEM-focused fields.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TOPICS COVERED
Roblox is a user-generated game sharing platform. That sounds complex, but think of Roblox like the YouTube of the games world! Just as YouTube allows users to either watch videos made by others or upload videos themselves, Roblox gives players the ability to create their own games or play games made by others.
Games in Roblox are created with Roblox Studio (included for free) using Lua, a programming language similar to Python with a shorter learning curve than other languages.
Lua is a free open-sourced programming language with an easy to read style. It is a fast language engine that can be embedded easily into applications, making it very popular among software developers. Lua is used in numerous games including Angry Birds, Civilization, and Star Wars Battlefront. The Lua coding tools used during camp are easy to pick up allowing students to customize the editor based on their skill level.
