Hatch Teaches Skills That Last a Lifetime

Ask any of our students why they enjoy attending Hatch and they’ll tell you – it’s FUN. While showing our kids a great time is very important, our goal is to teach them skills that we believe will last a lifetime.

Here are some skills students pick up as part of the Hatch experience:

Writing Code

We teach kids how to write real lines of code! Not just ‘drag-and-drop’ coding - but real JavaScript! Get a behind the scenes look at our coding platform here.

Portfolio Building

We help all our students build a digital portfolio and think critically on what they would like to add to it. So far, we’ve helped our students build 14,604 digital portfolios which include 98,735 projects and 2,310 showcases!

Critical Thinking

Our students learn new topics in math, statistics, physics and more! These skills apply well beyond computer science and will help them in all facets of life.

Communication Skills

Hatch classrooms are designed to facilitate open communication and group learning. Students get to talk to peers and make meaningful relationships with coaches and other students. Field trips, like our recent one to Mozilla, also help students see how coding applies in real life scenarios and meet coding professionals.

All in all, we teach kids how to have fun, be independent and manage themselves. We believe these skills, along with coding, set them up for success in our increasingly digital future and helps them build great self-confidence.
