Getting your computer ready for Roblox Coding

Roblox is by far one of our favorite tools to teach coding and game design. It incorporates so many aspects of computer science into one, easy to use, fun, programming tool. In this article, we will go over how to set your computer up to do Roblox Coding. 

Ages 7 and Up.

Step 1: Create a Roblox Account

If your child is interested in Roblox coding, I am sure that they already have an account, but if not, here are instructions to do create one. Create a free account on the roblox website.

Once you have created their account, have them log into Roblox and let them play around with playing different games!

Step 2: Install Roblox Studio
