The Ninjas are coming to the Med City.

Norma Flores-Ibarra and her husband, Daniel Flores-Ibarra, are ready to open a Code Ninjas center at 26 17th Ave. NW in the Miracle Mile Shopping Center on Saturday. It's located next to the ABC Toy Zone.

Texas-based Code Ninjas, which has four locations in the Twin Cities, is a hands-on educational center that teaches kids ages 7-14 how to write computer code and create games and programs.

The curriculum builds on technology most children are familiar with and then makes it a game to delve into how it actually works.

Following the ninja theme, the sensei, or instructor, will guide the students as they earn “belts” for each completed level.

“This goes beyond computers,” said Norma Flores-Ibarra. “They will be learning problem-solving skills they can use for the rest of their lives.”
