If your children are anything like mine, they love to be on electronics. They love playing games on apps or on the computer. I am amazed at how many hours they can stay captivated by these activities.
I always feel mom guilt when I think about how much time they spend on electronics. Yet electronics is their #1 choice for free time. Luckily, I found an activity for my son where he gets to be on electronics but also out of the house and learning a skill that will be useful for the rest of his life. That skill is coding!
Now, I do not know much about coding. When I think about it, it’s a bunch of symbols, letters and numbers in patterns that create something on the computer. I find it very confusing. My son went to a free introductory class at Code Ninjas and at the end of his 30 minutes he showed me a game he made and I was able to play it. He was very proud of himself and I was impressed at how fast he was able to understand and learn how to code a simple game.
With how much our world relies on technology, coding is going to become (if it hasn’t already) an important skill to have and understand. Code Ninjas is a class that will be an investment in your child’s life. It will also teach them how to create something from nothing, problem solving skills, and expand their creativity.
Code Ninjas has a very flexible schedule. You get to pick the day and time each week that your child will attend class. You can schedule their class for the same day and time each week or on a different day each week. Your child will receive a white wristband when you sign up and they will get to scan their wristband before each class to check in. As your child completes certain steps and challenges they will progress and receive different colored wristbands as they progress through the program. There are 2 classes available at Code Ninjas, the Jr class for 5 – 7 year olds and the Create class for 7 – 14 year olds.
Code Ninjas Jr teaches children the foundation of coding and problem solving. They play games and activities that require no reading. They will get to participate in hands-on activities that they will be able to understand and work on with support from the Code Senseis.
Code Ninjas Create lets your child learn at their own pace. They can build video games that are similar to the ones they love and have fun learning coding skills. They get to work with other children and learn from each other and the Senseis.
In the classroom they have circuit kits, robotics and a 3D printer.
Summer is quickly approaching and Code Ninjas has a whole lot going on! Transform your child’s love for technology into an exciting learning adventure. Guided by their team of Code Senesis, Code Ninjas Camps empower kids to gain valuable tech skills and make new friends. It’s an unforgettably fun learning experience! Each camp offers a unique, fun and engaging way to learn coding and programming with activities and games that they love!
They have 12 different summer camp themes. Make sure you register fast as many children will love to attend these classes. They start June 26 and end August 27th.
