The School Project judging is over and the winners have received their prizes. Hooray!
There are 106 Grand Prize winners – users who sent in projects that used ROBLOX in inspiring and clever ways. The users on this list received 500 R$ and all the book hats currently in the Catalog…
Biology Textbook, Chemistry Textbook, Economics Textbook, Fait Lux: The Life and Times of a Builderman, Finnegan’s Wake, Geography Textbook, I, LOLRUS, Learn to Program C++, Math Textbook, Music Theory Textbook, Quantum Chromodynamics For Dummies, Reading Textbook, Teapot Tome, The Lolcat Bible, The Necrobloxicon, The Nethack Man Pages, The Recess Codex
and… ROBUK: How Education Determines Future Success
There were another 225 user who received the book hat ROBUK: How Education Determines Future Success as an entry prize. We liked their work a lot and wanted to reward them for trying. Many of the entries showed a lot of scholastic skill but were not really using ROBLOX as an aid to learning.
This event really shows that ROBLOX can be used to help with school projects, at school or at home. There were so many entries we will not be able to showcase them all on the News. We would like to show a few more though! Here are a few and hopefully soon we can put others soon.
Check these out!
Motion – Friction and Energy
Assignment- Give an example of Friction and Energy
Roblox helped me with this project because it displayed the properties of Friction and Energy and it was easy to use. -mythicman95
I used Roblox to create the carbon cycle. My class had to create a cycle on the environment. Since some one had already done a water cycle, I decided to make a carbon cycle. I created a carbon cycle on Roblox. After I finished I edited with Photoshop. Roblox helped so much with this. The next day I gave it to my teacher and I received an A. -Daniel9107
In Art Class I was required to construct a three dimensional Project for the end of the year. I was stumped on how I should complete the project. I decided I’d make some form of Abstract or Modern art. I realized I could use the computer for my project. I tried designing my model on paint, but I just wasn’t good at it. I got bored and decided to play a little bit of my favorite game, Roblox. After a bit of building I noticed that I could design my project on Roblox. I successfully made the models my teacher was asking for and I got an A+. – StoneBlood
Direct quote from the teacher: “Great Work! Your models contain lots of texture and are very Abstract!”
Assignment: Show that in the absence of air, ALL objects, regardless of weight or shape, fall at the same rate. I learned that Sir Isaac Newton was the first to use experiments to show that there is something called air resistance. Air actually slows an object down when it falls. The heavier the object is, the less it is affected by air resistance. So if there was no air they would all fall at the same speed! Since I am home schooled I was able to get on Roblox and show that since there is no air on Roblox a small brick and a large brick fall at the same speed! This was great because one, I got an A and two, I had a chance to participate in a Roblox contest! YAY! – ryno1o1
We were looking at Simple Harmonic Motion. We’d been spending a few lessons looking at simple harmonic motion in a spring, we’d been having to look at a spring because it’s hard to look at the displacement, acceleration and velocity or a pendulum. So I went into Roblox and made a pendulum, and made it print off the position of the pendulum over a course of 10 seconds, every 0.05 seconds. I then put this into excel to get a graph. Later I made a script to actually plot a graph in game.
My physics teacher was impressed by the application of Roblox for motion physics experiments. -Articerile
