Half and Full-day Camps at Karate-Themed Kids Coding Center
You’ve probably heard the word coding, but never considered it a second language. The local owners of the Robbinsville Code Ninjas are working to change that by putting in the time to help teach the next generation valuable problem-solving, math and team building skills all while having a blast! Code Ninjas, a new tech learning center, is located at 1063 Washington Blvd. in Robbinsville. Coding is the way of the future and is already considered a second language by the top tech corporations such as Google, IBM and Facebook, and there’s demand by parents who recognize the importance of introducing kids early on to these skills.
Vishal and Jigna Patel teamed up with longtime friends and fellow parents, Ankur Shah and Avani Trivedi, to bring Robbinsville an exciting and much needed educational opportunity in the ever-growing technological world. Patel and Shah both work professionally in the Information Technology field. Their curiosity for computers and technology started at a young age, even with no formal coding until later in their educational careers. Their love for technology and coding inspired them to create more opportunities for children in the community to experience technology at an earlier age.
“We both know first-hand how beneficial coding can be. Developing skills like critical thinking and collaboration are vital in the classroom and in everyday life,” said Patel. “Code Ninjas is a great way to ‘fill in the blanks’ of what’s missing from school curriculums. We love how kids are able to have fun everyday learning skills that are being used more and more every day in every field.”
Robbinsville children ages 5-14 can look forward to visiting the new Code Ninjas center to learn how to code in a fun, safe, and social learning environment where gaming is celebrated, and STEM is cool. The new center will also teach robotics while encouraging collaboration and team building. Everything about Code Ninjas is built around fun, which keeps kids coming back. But the center also provides the results that parents are looking for, as their children gain coding and problem-solving skills they’ll need for the future, no matter what path they choose.
Code Ninjas accomplishes this with a robust, game-based curriculum made up of nine belts, just like martial arts. The curriculum is self-paced, but not self-taught; kids get immediate help and encouragement from Code Senseis and fellow students as they advance from white to black belt. The program keeps kids motivated with little wins along the way, and “Belt-Up” celebrations where they receive color-coded wristbands to mark their graduation to the next level. By the time a child finishes the program, they will publish an app in an app store.
Code Ninjas offers a variety of opportunities for children to get involved. The center will have themed camps all year round and will offer Summer Camps when school is out of session. Our camps will include Game Builders Club, Roblox Create, Storytelling in Scratch, Minecraft, Roblox and so much more!
