Hatch Coding won the 2020 EdTech Digest Award for Cool Tool in the category of Coding, Computer Science, and Engineering Solution. In competing against international giants like LEGO MindStorms EV3, Unity Learn, and Woz U, Hatch Studio won for its software's ability to develop authentic computer science talents for Canadian children and teens.
Hatch software supports students as they move through 26 learning levels in a way that mimics what real-world programmers do. Over time, they learn to work from pseudocode, to work directly from English instruction, and to work on multi-user group projects.
"As a small Canadian company, it's a big win to come out on top," says Hatch co-founder and CEO Peter Kuperman. "With grants like CanCode going to charities and nonprofits, we know that Canadians are very interested in coding as a growth sector. We look forward to helping Canadian families and families around the world get ready for the future."
