Code Ninjas opened a new location at 7315 Fairmont Parkway, Pasadena, in late July, with a grand opening celebration July 24.

The coding business for kids teaches children ages 7-14 about computer coding and problem-solving skills while having fun building video games, per a July 26 media release.The Deer Park location is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs Sonda and Michael Frament. Michael has over 20 years of professional experience in computer programming and software development.

“Code Ninjas promotes children to learn in an encouraging and collaborative environment, which is why we are so excited to bring Code Ninjas to the Deer Park and Pasadena communities,” Michael said in the release. “Children in our community that come to Code Ninjas will gain a strong understanding of coding in a way that is interactive, social and fun.”

The game-based curriculum is made up of nine belts, per the release, and by the time a child finishes the program, they will publish an app in an app store. There are more than a dozen Houston-area Code Ninjas locations.

Code Ninjas offers a weeknight drop-in program, camps and parents night out events on weekends. 281-930-7347.
