Every student needs connection and meaning to thrive. We've crafted our software carefully, thoughtfully, to create an online work space and material for deep learning. Hatch Studio software is a powerful tool for teaching and learning: a means for novices to learn programming for expression and development and a means for non-novices to greatly improve their skills to create.
Keeping students engaged, challenged, and interested in learning is a fine balance. After 6+ years of research and development, we’ve figured out a thing or two.
Students develop important background knowledge and understanding of computer programming, doing small amounts of independent work from the very beginning.
Thinking, teamwork, creativity, communication—some of the competencies developed as students become programming literate with Hatch Studio.
Reading, writing, arithmetic, and now programming: the four Rs needed for success in the automated age. While focused on the fourth, Hatch Studio develops them all.
Calm atmosphere with challenging and fun projects. Kids can work at their own pace and when stuck ask experienced computer techies their questions, which are broken down and clearly described. Kids can learn independently, which my son likes.
It makes my child think and brainstorm.
My daughter had a blast and made some good friends while learning the very basics of coding.
My son really enjoyed it. It helped improve his concentration, maths and computing skills. He enjoyed all his projects and rewards on completion.
Yesterday, Maxwell wrote the Canadian Computer Competition (Junior Level) from the University of Waterloo. He wrote with a dozen other students (all Grade 11 and 12 students who were taking computer science courses at the school. Maxwell was the only Grade 9 student from his high school and he had the highest score amongst everyone (60/75, 4 of the 5 questions correctly done).
