Speaking of Hatch’s vision, Co-founder and CEO of Camp K12, Anshul BhagiMENTION “There are over 100 million young coders today who use a variety of free coding platforms to learn to code by creating games and apps. These platforms are extremely efficient and they put in place stage for children’s coding movement in 2007, but most of them are limited to creating 2D projects, designed for the age of smartphones and screens dishes.While technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality become mainstream, we need to upgrade the tools that children learn and are taught by teachers for modern use cases and content formats .. We designed Hatch as a coding platform for children of all ages in the metaverse.We want to give more than 100 million young children their first experience of creating AR / VR and the confidence to be the builders of the inevitable future. aon of mixed reality rather than its passive consumers.
The platform is now used by governments (including the Government of delhion India), and hundreds of schools and educational technologies around the world. In December, Hatch Kids was featured on Code.org as an Hour of Code event and has now become the #1 most popular event for students in grades 6-8 and the 3rd most popular event in the entire Code. org “Hour of Code” ecosystem.
The team expects more than 2 million MAUs from here December 2022powered by both direct-to-student consumption, as well as partnerships with more than 1,500 schools, edtech, and other government agencies globally by the end of the year.
