Coding in Roblox Studio

Roblox Studio uses a typed-out scripting language called Lua. It’s best described as similar to Python, but even easier to teach since Lua doesn’t require strict typing for semicolons and other syntax that create hurdles for new learners. Roblox Studio does not currently drag-and-drop coding, like the type found in Scratch.
