Code Ninjas in Boscombe is now officially opened to the public!
The brand-new kids' coding studio, which was launched by local STEM guru Neil Carrington, was inaugurated by Bournemouth Mayor on September 11.
Neil said: “It’s amazing to see how our ninjas - the name we give to our students - are progressing in our dojo during these tough times. Last year was challenging for everyone but for kids it will have been especially difficult.
“To be able to celebrate the launch of the first kids coding hub in our community now that restrictions have eased was a real highlight.
“The Code Ninjas team and I were proud to welcome so many local families on the day and want to thank them for celebrating our launch with us.”
During the event, children were invited to participate in a wide range of fun activities, including video-game creation, drone piloting, robot building and other STEM challenges.
Neil added: “At Code Ninjas, we want our kids to develop a real passion for technology, so while the whole programme is loads of fun, it is also very educational. They are learning the language of the future - we want to give kids a gift that lasts a lifetime.
“Having worked in the community as a STEM specialist for a number of years, I truly believe that technological education is the future. That’s why we aim to teach children aged five to 14 to think and solve STEM problems using coding, engineering and robotics.
