New Kid-Focused Coding School in the West End to Host Party with Robots This Weekend

Computer programming tutoring franchise Code Ninjas is celebrating the launch of its new West End location with a grand opening celebration this weekend.

Code Ninjas has a simple but ambitious goal: make coding accessible and fun for kids. The school’s game-based curriculum focuses on teamwork, logic, math and problem solving, according to the company website. The company has locations across the country, including locations in Falls Church and Burke, and has been working to expand internationally.

The Alexandria location opened in November at 4694 King Street, in the northwest corner of the city.

The celebration is scheduled to run from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and will include games and prizes, as well as tours and special membership deals, according to the Facebook page for the company. An event description said the grand opening will feature kid-accessible robotics, drones and virtual reality.
