Please let them know you found them on Macaroni Kid!
“At Code Ninjas, we channel children’s natural interest in games to teach them coding skills that will benefit them through the rest of their lives. By building games with us, your child will learn problem-solving skills, collaborate with other ninjas, code robotics, and have a blast doing it! All students start as a white belt, progressing through 9 levels until they reach black. By the time they are a black belt, they will have created and published their own app to Google Play and the App store! We have amazing senseis in the dojo too (everything is ninja-themed here), they’re local high school and college students pursuing careers in software development and robotics; they’re enthusiastic, helpful and great role models. If your child enjoys video games or creating on the computer, this is the place to channel that into something really positive.”
