ROBLOX is all kinds of fun, but there’s no doubt that our community members gain valuable life skills by engaging in the creative process of going from gamer to game creator. Coding, digital modeling, communication, entrepreneurship, business savvy – these are all things anyone can pick up by participating in ROBLOX’s bustling creator community. Even educators have started taking notice of ROBLOX’s potential as a learning tool, and we’re working to make that more common – starting locally.
A couple weeks ago, five members of the ROBLOX team headed to the E.R. Taylor Elementary School in our Bay Area home to introduce basic coding to a group of roughly 70 third- through fifth-graders. That might seem too young to start building and coding in ROBLOX Studio, but today there really is no “too young” to start absorbing tech knowledge.
