Celebrate Computer Science Education Week and sharpen your coding, game building, and teamwork skills at Code Ninjas. You could win awesome prizes both locally and nationally!
How It Works
Kids will flex their coding and creative muscles while building a game in MakeCode, and then present it to the group. Our Code Senseis will be the judges and score the games.
Who Can Participate
Kids must be ages 7-14 and have some coding experience to participate.
In-Person Attendance Policy
Based on local, county, and state guidelines and an effort to keep everyone safe, we are going to be operating with the following processes:
- Students and staff will be required to wash their hands as they enter and sanitize their hands before entering the dojo.
- In order to support this limitation, we will require you to schedule the time you want to come in.
- Fall Hours! We will continue to evaluate and expand our hours as needed!
- Our staff will utilize remote computer viewing technologies to limit close contact with students. This is a new technology that will allow all screens to be viewed by our sensei in order to be able to monitor and help when they are needed!
- Our staff will be wearing masks. We would recommend that your ninja wears a mask as well.
- The tables will be separated, with only one student per table.
- Temperatures of staff and students will be taken upon entering the facility. Those with a fever or who are not “feeling well” will be asked to return home.
- Sanitation practices as recommended by the health department will continue to be followed.
- All computer equipment will continue to be sanitized after each use.
