Hatch Coding students turn ideas into code in our 2021 Game Jam Competition

Hatch Coding hosted a Game Jam Competition where students had 3 weeks to code a game around the "animals" theme and show off their creative problem-solving skills.

Students had to make up a game idea, then bring it to life through their coding skills. This process helps to teach one of our five core competencies, turning an idea into code.

There were 2 categories for students to submit their projects - Game Creation and Visual Display. Explore the winning games and learn about each winner’s process, challenges and key learnings in their journey to achieving coding literacy with Hatch Coding.
