About Roblox

Roblox is a global platform where millions of people gather together every day to imagine, create, and share experiences with each other.

All the online games you see on the platform have been built by members of the Roblox community for members of the Roblox community. The types of gameplay on Roblox are just as limitless as the imagination of the creators themselves. Players can build the ultimate theme park, compete as a professional race car driver, star in a fashion show, become a superhero, or simply design a dream home and hang out with friends. Roblox is free to download and free to play on all modern smartphones, tablets, computers, Xbox One, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.

ConnectSafely, a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit organization dedicated to educating users of connected technology about safety, privacy, and security, published a helpful guide to educate parents about the Roblox platform and how to promote good digital habits for your kids. The guide also outlines the options available to parents to help provide a safe and enjoyable experience on Roblox. Download the guide by clicking here.

About Roblox Studio

Roblox Studio is a free, all-in-one building tool that comes with every installation of Roblox on computers. It allows players to create anything they imagine, from simple drag-and-drop building experiences to complex multiplayer games, and then upload it to the Roblox platform.

Roblox offers free educational resources.

Roblox’s roots have always been steeped in STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). By giving people the tools to explore their imagination, we’ve empowered an entire generation of people to develop the skills they need to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and creators.

Our free creation tools and educational content can be used to teach real coding, game design, digital citizenship, and entrepreneurial skills.

Roblox has been such a great experience for my kids. Roblox has inspired their creativity while also teaching them the value of community and teamwork. And it’s helping build their communication and math skills in unexpected, positive ways. We love Roblox!

My daughter loves Roblox! So far, she has learned how to build her own space exploration game which has inspired her to learn more about coding. Roblox has great resources to help teach kids how to design their own creations at any level.

I’m impressed by how Roblox has tapped into the creative side of my two boys. Roblox has proven itself to be a great opportunity for us to spend more time together. We have our favorite games that we like to play together and it’s become a lovely ritual.
