Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, also known as STEM is a valuable part of students' education. When we add the letter A - for ARTS - to the acronym, we get an even more meaningful experience in programs at school and at camp. It even makes for great playtime and Hatch achieves that through project-based learning.
We love getting feedback directly from our students. Parents love the valuable skills our courses offer their children, but we like hearing directly from the students so that we can better evaluate our programs' effectiveness. Why? Because our aim is to make coding fun and accessible for young people and they'll tell us straight up how they feel.
In this blog post we look at why Peter Kuperman, one of Hatch's co-founders, is excited about kids coding, making, and innovating.
Peter Kuperman believes that in a perfect world, every student will have the opportunity to create and make something innovative and new that comes from their hearts. He loves toys, games, coding, and sharing those passions with anyone willing to listen. Making, coding, and innovation are essential to making Hatch fun.
So, you've made it through the school year. Lost mittens, packed lunches, PA days. You did it. With the kids finally asleep, you breathe a sigh of relief when it hits you, SUMMER CAMP. What to choose? Who to choose? How to choose?
Hatch coding is all about self-paced, mastery-based learning. Co-founders, Peter Kuperman and Emmanuelle Deaton, are life-long learners. Peter is a computer engineer and Emmanuelle is a teacher who has taught every grade level in K-12.
Hatch Coding was started by Emmanuelle Deaton and Peter Kuperman. Emmanuelle has a background teaching French Immersion, core French, extended French, and the social sciences, while Peter is a computer engineer. They're both passionate about making a difference in the world. One of the things they want to accomplish is getting more women into technology. In June 2017, Emmanuelle sat down with a staff writer to answer some questions.
In 2016, one of the co-founders and CEOs of Hatch, Peter Kuperman, and then COO, Mina Tawadrous, explained why coding is so beneficial for kids, and why Hatch has developed the best way to teach all different types of learners.
We’re passionate about coding – not only because it is a fun activity for kids, but because it is also a solid investment in their future. If your kiddos are in the process of learning to code, or they're considering adding coding to their roster, either during the school year or at a camp, here are a few things that you’re sure to notice:
