Skills in technology are tools to shape the future

From the cars we drive to the clothes we wear, there is no doubt that technology is influencing our future. Hatch Coding started in 2014 as a school to teach children the art of computer programming. Spurred on by the belief that children who are given real tools can build real things, our goal remains to turn bright minds on by teaching skills to create.

With thousands of projects and themes, children get to code the projects and games that truly interest them. And when kids work on projects they love, the amount they learn is limitless.

Timeline

Winter 2014

Hatch Coding is founded to help other kids & teens solve their own problems by learning how to build software.

Spring 2015

Hatch Studio (our software) launches after 10 months of testing with over 200 students.

Summer 2017

Hatch Coding launches challenges and project extensions for over 600 projects, giving students a massive content library.

Fall 2019

Hatch Coding launches Superpowers, a way of tracking 5 wide-ranging core competencies every programmer should learn.

Studio (our software) is the only Computer Science resource adopted by the State of Florida for use by all students, K-12.

Winter 2021

Hatch Coding further organizes skills and competencies, launching 4 meaningful certificates: Writer, Author, Intern, Jr. Developer.

Progressing through these allows students to go from no coding experience to getting paid internships and paid jobs.

Frequently asked questions

What languages do you teach?

Students can learn in JavaScript and Python, using Studio—our intelligent software. These languages are 2 of the top 5 most popular programming languages in the world.

Is this online or in person?

Hatch Coding offers stand alone software that takes students from their first day of coding to their first job in tech. We do not offer in-person classes or learning.

Can I learn to code by building games?

Yes! Students master 418 computer science skills while developing 5 core competencies over the course of 4 certificates. With 375+ themes, students can build games, animations, simulations, calculation engines, sports projects or anything their heart desires.

When we started, we knew that there was a better way of teaching computer science.

1

Creativity over right and wrong answers

We believe Computer Science is more like a language where there are no right or wrong answers and less like math. We want to teach students to be the best writers they can be.

2

Learning happens best when students love how they study

People are most interested when they are able to build, create, and solve autonomously. They love to learn when there is an appropriate balance between support and independent work.

3

Computer Science needs to be accessible to everyone

We believe that to meet the needs of the economy of the next 20 years, learning Computer Science needs be accessible to the vast majority of young people and not a purely theoretical discipline. This is why we offer 1:1 lessons at home. This is also why we make Studio available to schools and districts at an affordable price.

4

The end result is mastery of 5 core competencies in the field

We believe that learning how to code needs to be more than just writing good code. It needs to be about knowing how to contribute to a team, how to solve problems, and how to turn ideas into code in addition to structuring, organizing and writing code that works.
