KIDS LEARN HOW TO CODE...THE NINJA WAY!
"Everybody in this country should learn to program a computer … because it teaches you how to think.”
- Steve Jobs
Coding is not just a skill. Rather, it’s an entirely new way of thinking when it comes to problem solving.
As software continues to expand in its presence around the world, reading and writing code is becoming a new form of literacy. Preparing our younger generation for this technical revolution is crucial for their future and ours.
The true value in teaching youth to code is not in the syntax but in the way it teaches youth to think using a step-by-step logical flow to solve problems and build projects.
THE NERD NINJAZ' DOJOS
A Nerd Ninjaz Dojo is located at your site so getting to it is no problem. Your school, library, community center, recreation center, or after school program will provide access to computers or laptop with the appropriate software and internet access.
A Dojo includes:
NERD NINJA TOOLS AND SUPPORT
The Dojo - Scratch, Alice, Learn To Mod and/or Vidcode are the code learning programs we use to introduce youth of all ages to coding due to their simpler and user friendly interface. Scratch, Alice, and Learn To Mod replace complex coding syntax with simple coding building blocks, making it easy for Nerd Ninjaz to learn through our project based learning approach, coaching, and peer-to-peer mentoring. Visit the websites through the links above for more information.
HOUR OF CODE AT YOUR SCHOOL - The Nerd Ninjaz can support your school or organization in participating in the Hour of Code, an global effort by code.org to teach millions of students about computer science. We prep administrators, teachers, and parents to implement and support the Hour of Code so that all students, parents, and teachers can participate and learn.
Family Code Night - HGEI co-organizes Family Code Night with schools and organizations. Family Code Night is a whole family event that ignites coding and computer science learning at any school, organization, and family. The program engages young people K-5 and their parents or guardians in the delightful experience of doing an hour of computer programming together, in an early evening special school program.
