COMING TO THOUSAND OAKS, CODE NINJAS
WHERE KIDS LEARN TO CODE
WHILE BUILDING GAMES THEY LOVE TO PLAY
An oasis where kids create the rules of their own video games while learning to code.
At Code Ninjas Thousand Oaks, opening March 2019, boys and girls can build and play video games alongside their friends, all-the-while learning to code. Coding is “the new literacy of the 21st Century.” Best of all, they are doing what they love and it’s fun!
At Code Ninjas, kids gain problem solving skills, develop logical thinking processes, build leadership skills, and grow their self-confidence.
Guided by “Senseis” (instructors), “ninjas” (students ages 7-14) embark on an immersive journey through the world of digital technology that also includes “STEM” stations (Science; Technology; Engineering; Math), laying the foundation for a lifelong learning track in the STEM field. Ninjas learn to write code for a variety of games; some of which they are already playing at home like Roblox and Minecraft. Levels of ninja mastery mirror those of the martial arts ascension to black belt. Once a ninja has proven that they have what it takes to become a black belt, the ninja will have conceptualized, designed, built and published their own app on the App Store.
“Growing up as a techie guy always interested in computers, I wish there was a place like this for me to go when I was young,” says Scott Matalon who purchased the Code Ninjas franchise. “I want to give youngsters in the community a jump-start in the job market of the future. Think about this: Gen Z’s (kids born from 1996 on) have never known life without the internet, social media, or smartphones. Their entire world involves some form of technology. Code Ninjas gives these kids an avenue to explore their world, their passions.”
Kids look forward to being at the center and parents love being able to log into their parent portal to see what their child has created. Fridays offer “Parents Night Out” and special events include birthday parties, and summer camps, just to name a few. Phone: 805-492-CODE (2633).
