Local Kids Coding Franchise Encourages STEM Education with Events, Charitable Giving This Holiday Season
Greeley, Colorado (December 1, 2020) – Code Ninjas Greeley, a coding center for kids, is celebrating Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), a national annual initiative to inspire kids to take interest in computer science. Throughout the week, Code Ninjas Greeley will host Hour of Code sessions leading up to a final Holiday Hackathon contest, where kids can explore coding and win prizes for their creativity while collecting goods for Toys for Tots.
“At Code Ninjas Greeley we are committed to advancing kids’ STEM education in a fun way – through building video games,” said Ed Gage, co-owner of Code Ninjas Greeley. “With 2020 being a difficult year for kids to try new and exciting things, 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 event(s) and Holiday Hackathon.”
All events are free and open to the public. Scratch and MakeCode activities will walk the kids through building a video game with coding. 3D Modeling will teach students how to make a 3D model that can be printed on a 3D printer. Participants taking part in Hour of Code and the Holiday Hackathon do not need any prior coding experience. Participants must sign up to participate here: https://www.codeninjas.com/CSEdWeek
