Code Ninjas, which uses a game-based curriculum to teach children math, logic, teamwork and problem-solving, will open three new locations in the St. Louis area.
Code Ninjas is designed to provide a safe, supportive environment where children ages 7-14 can build the skills needed for the future through coding (also known as computer programming). Students learn coding by building robotics and creating video games they love, like Scratch, Minecraft and Roblox. As children progress in their skill development, they receive different belt levels as they would in a dojo.
Code Ninjas offers programs after school on weekdays (some locations also offer hours on weekends). Kids can attend up to twice a week. While the program focuses on drop-in services, Code Ninjas will offer camps and birthday parties as well.
Code Ninjas is on track to open at 2955 Hwy. K, O'Fallon, MO, Dec. 8, with pre-enrollment beginning around Nov. 9. For more information about the O'Fallon location, call 636-851-9634. Locations are also planned in Wildwood and Des Peres. For a complete list of locations and other information, visit codeninjas.com. Based in Houston, Code Ninjas was established in 2016 and currently has about 70 locations open nationwide, with another 250 in development.
