Code Ninja a coding and computer programming company has officially opened it's doors here in Lubbock. It's primary goal is to teach children ages 7 to 14 software engineering using video games. The children participating will learn coding languages like Scratch, Mine Craft, Roblox and then apply those skills to other digital uses. 

"They are learning not only the technical side of building games and computers and programming, but they are learning you know teamwork, leadership, critical thinking skills," said Amy Slaughter, owner and center director of Code Ninja. "These are all skills that are valuable in any work place."

Just like martial arts as these ninjas progress in their training they get new belts to show their rank. These ninjas will be in high demand, according to 'Burning Glass Technologies' in 2015 alone there were 7 million job openings requiring coding in the U.S.
