Speaking of Hatch’s vision, Camp K12 co-founder and CEO Anshul Bhagi said:
“There are over 100 million children’s programmers out there today who use a variety of free coding platforms to learn to code by creating games and apps. These platforms are incredibly effective and set the stage for the coding movement of children starting in 2007, however the vast majority of are limited to creating 2D designs, built for the era of smartphones and flat screens. As technologies such as AR and VR become mainstream, we need to update the tools children learn on and on which Educators Teach for Modern Use Cases and Content We created Hatch as a children’s coding platform for the metaverse era. We want to give over 100 million children their first AR / VR creation experience and self-confidence to be builders in the inevitable future of mixed reality rather than passive consumers of it. ”
