What could be better than a video game summer camp?
A new Spruce Grove business is aiming to teach local youth basic computing skills through a series of technology-oriented “summer camps” this summer.
With hundreds of locations in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, Code Ninjas is the world’s fastest and largest growing “kids coding franchise.” Its goal is to teach children how to code in a fun, safe, inspiring environment through a video game-based curriculum. Simply put, the term “code” refers to a unique series of words and numbers that tell computer programs what to do.
“As many of us know, kids have a natural affinity for video games. We don’t just want them to be consumers of digital media. By engaging them in the coding side of things, we can also make them become producers. We’re really about inspiring kids and the next generation to get engaged with coding,” said Edwin Pau, Code Ninjas Spruce Grove Co-Director.
