MALVERN, PA — Say the words “video game” and your kids are bound to stop and listen. The local owners of a new Code Ninjas, a learning center at 215 Lancaster Avenue, know that video games aren’t only fun, but educational. Code Ninjas will serve the local area by teaching children computer coding and problem-solving skills while having fun building video games.
The Malvern location is owned and operated by Nam Phan and Tony Dang. Phan is a data analyst and entrepreneur who has been in the real estate business with his brother-in-law Dang until opening their first Code Ninjas location. The duo has plans to open a second location in the area within the next year.
“Everything these days revolves around coding and we truly believe Code Ninjas can help provide children the skills for future employment,” said Phan. “The kids of the Malvern area are going to love being engaged with the Code Ninjas curriculum and we can’t wait to get kids in our center playing video games, having fun and learning something valuable.”
Malvern 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. 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 jobs of the future. At Code Ninjas, kids have fun and parents see results.
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, including a flexible after school and weekend drop-in program, camps and Parents Night Out events on weekends.
To ensure the safety of all Ninjas, parents, and Senseis, Code Ninjas is taking extra precautions. The center will be thoroughly cleaned routinely, on a daily basis by employees. Devices, tables, door handles, bathrooms, and other frequently-used surfaces will be sanitized throughout the day. In addition, student workspaces and equipment, including computers, monitors, and mice will be cleaned between every student session.
