Hatchee is a tool that connects students with invisible data from their environment to help them understand abstract concepts in introductory science.

It collects information about four elements – light, color, humidity, and sound – and represents them graphically through a computer or a tablet device. Through a combination of tangible and graphical tools, Hatchee explains how the invisible properties of these elements respond to immediate changes in the environment, allowing students to build visual references when learning abstract scientific concepts.

Following the steps of the Scientific Method, students can use Hatchee to help form hypotheses and answer questions about real world scenarios involving the four elements. By connecting students with live scientific data from their surroundings, Hatchee helps them understand that the world in which we live is rather dynamic and responsive to our actions.

Hatchee is designed to complement other devices, such as tablets, personal computers, and interactive whiteboards, that are becoming pervasive in modern classrooms. While the graphical interface is suitable for class demonstrations as well as group and individual experiments through existing digital platforms, the Hatchee egg adds a tangible element to encourage further exploration and learning.

Through simple and playful design, Hatchee empowers students to explore the magic of invisible science around them.
