At Hatch, our goal is to make coding more accessible and fun to learn for the next generation. To reach our goal, our passionate coaches are a major part of the equation. We love to learn about and share their backstories. Many of our coaches live and breath coding. They work with code every day and are able to relay their expertise and real world experience to Hatch students to spark their curiosity.
Sean’s interest in coding first emerged when he wanted to expand his own gameplay on Minecraft, and his passion has been growing ever since! Sean was featured in a newsletter published by The York School, where he discussed five reasons why coding should be taught to every student: problem solving, getting a job in the future, engagement, adaptability, and minimal set-up. After hearing about his level of excitement, we just had to follow up to talk about how his journey with Hatch began!
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.
In today’s digital world, an increasing number of jobs require a knowledge of coding – even if only a basic level of knowledge. According to a recent study published by software company Burning Glass, seven million job openings in 2015 listed coding as an asset to the role.
Hatch Canada teaches coding in a fun and engaging way in order to prepare your kids for the digital future. We do this through our online learning platform designed to give students real time and human feedback on progress. We’ve showcased projects made by our students in the past but we wanted to give you a behind the scenes look into how those projects are actually coded.
Technology is everywhere. It’s in the way we order food, the way we socialize, and even how we read. That’s why learning basic skills in computing or engineering is more important now than ever before. There are many benefits from STEAM programs and while some schools offer them, others don't or your child may want to do even more such learning. That’s where Hatch comes in.
Technology hasn’t just changed, it’s changed the world. So many of the things we interact with day to day depend on it and are driven by it. That’s why at Hatch Canada we encourage the youngest members of the community to embrace it - to learn to code. Coding may just be the language of the future, and speaking that language might enhance your career options.
