Local kids coding franchise encourages STEM education with events, charitable giving this holiday season.
Code Ninjas Westfield, a coding center for kids, in collaboration with Microsoft MakeCode is celebrating Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek). This is a national annual initiative that inspires kids to take interest in computer science. Throughout the whole week, Code Ninjas Westfield will host Hour of Code sessions leading up to a final Game Jam contest on Dec. 12 , where kids can participate in a friendly competition to build video games for a chance to win cool prizes. The top game will be submitted to MakeCode arcade Game Jam. Protima Pandey, owner of Code Ninjas Westfield, commented:
“At Code Ninjas Westfield we are committed to advancing kids’ STEM education in a fun way – through building video games. We are thrilled to provide safe opportunities for kids to explore the world of computer programming and give back to our local community through this year’s annual Hour of Code events and Game Jam.”
All events are free and open to the public. Participants taking part in Hour of Code and/or Game Jam do not need any prior coding experience. Everyone has to sign up to participate from here.
