Week 2 
Civic Tech: Education & Cyber Security Roblox Studio 
As the world adapted to some form of virtual school environment, our children are spending more time browsing online and utilizing portable devices. They are embracing technology faster than any previous generation and is well aware of concepts like networking, content creation, virtual interactions and the internet. We work with students in identifying what is personal information and ways on safeguarding data. Helping them be better equipped to understand and manage key online safety issues, including inappropriate or unwanted contact, cyber bullying and the risks of sharing images online. We will also incorporate topics related to education as a whole. With topics on universal education and alternative education. We want our next generation to be ambassadors of goodwill and make educated decisions on how to safely use the technology they reply on daily. To help students embrace this vision, we will be utilizing Roblox Studio. Roblox allow children to imagine, create and play together in immersive 3D worlds. Typically, children use Roblox at home with little to no direction. Roblox Studio allow students to create games using built-in 3D design tools and LUA scripting language. Students will take a big step forward by creating a game that can be published to the public. We start with simple coding concepts such as loop and conditional to get students familiar with text-based coding and gradually goes deeper to more advanced concepts such as variables, arrays, and more. Students will learn workspace, objects, and how to configure properties of the objects such as color and texture.

 

Students are not required to bring personal equipment or have a Roblox account (we will provide a generic account). If students decided to bring their own device, they will need Roblox Studio installed on their Windows or Macintosh computers (no Chromebook), a (free) Roblox account, and mechanical mouse.
