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.
In the words of MIT professor, Mitchel Resnick: “Coding is the new literacy. To thrive in tomorrow’s society, young people must learn to design, create and express themselves with digital technologies.”
A key part of our March Break and Summer Camp programs are the field trips which put students face to face with industry experts and companies that use coding to change the world. One of those companies is Mozilla, developers of the free, open-source web browser Firefox.
