Here's the deal:

I've been a part of the Roblox community since I was eight years old, when I also got interested in (physical) robotic combat. For the past 3-ish years I've been part of numerous groups that build, script and fight these crazy contraptions.

Now it's time to inspire more builders to be interested and wanting to compete, time for you to learn what I had to. And believe you me, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Who this is for:

Tweens and teens (with exceptions for precocious primary-schooler) who have an interest in coding. This program has 15 spaces and seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

What you'll learn:

Roblox Lua (a scripting language similar to Javascript, the principles of which can be applied to other languages), and the "design and build process" for 3D animated objects.

What you'll do:

Learn how to code, design and build robots in the Roblox environment, and have a bit of fun doing it.
