“Code Ninjas, the fastest growing franchise in the United States, is opening in Eagan on July 9, 2018, with additional locations soon to follow in Woodbury and Apple Valley.
Using an engaging game-based curriculum that emphasizes teamwork, logic, math and problem solving, Code Ninjas teaches kids ages 7 to 14 to code (also known as computer programming).”
What’s more, it encourages them to continually learn and grow and enables them to track their progress through different belt levels — just like a real dojo. By the end of the program, kids will publish a real app in the app store!
“My husband and I have always encouraged our kids to pursue their passions,” says Heidi Backer, owner. “My dream of becoming an entrepreneur combined with my desire to channel their love of gaming into a meaningful skillset made Code Ninjas the perfect fit! One of the things that I love most about the program — and think other parents will too — is that the kids are so engaged in building their own video games they aren’t even aware that they’re learning!”
Aided by a Code Sensei®, the program, which uses Scratch®, Minecraft® and Roblox®, enables kids to learn at their own pace in a fun, safe, and inspiring learning environment. The center offers summer camps, drop-in programs and after-school programs. In addition, it also offers Parent’s Night Out and birthday party programs.
