TORONTO, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hatch Coding is proud to announce that it has 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 software won for its ability to develop authentic computer science talents for Canadian children and teens.

Since 2014, Hatch Coding has focused on developing high calibre software that develops real-world coding skills. Unlike its competitors, Hatch Studio software teaches students 8-18yrs to read and write in fully-featured programming languages; students develop core programming and computer science competencies in either JavaScript or Python.

Almost every electronic device relies on code. Code is a form of writing that is easy to learn and makes it possible to create computer software, apps and websites. Learning code empowers people by understanding and using technology for the future.

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.

According to Hatch co-founder and CEO, Peter Kuperman:

“As a small Canadian company, it’s a big win to come out on top of LEGO and Unity. 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.”
