ROBLOX Studio: Video game development.

Roblox Studio provides a unique opportunity for students to experience the real world of game design in a creative, supportive and participatory 3D environment. The Roblox Studio platform mimics current game creation software such as Unity 3D and provides direct access to an authentic audience. Many students are already frequent players of Roblox games however many do not know that they can become creators and developers themselves. This is therefore highly motivating for students and offers NIST an excellent opportunity to build approaches to learning skills (thinking, communication, social, self-management and research skills), extend their understanding of the gaming industry, and experience building a safe community of practice.
