Our Hatch Innovation Lab is located at Otago Polytechnic and is open Monday – Thursday 3.30-5.30pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm.

Our Hatch Maker programme exposes our young innovators to a wide range of skills, tools and experiences for problem solving and creating in the 21st Century.

Our Hatch Creator programme is more focused on project-based learning which incorporates the skills achieved in the Hatch Maker programme. 

We offer a range of options to schools including access to our digital resources (all child-tested) as well as professional learning opportunities.

Launch Boxes

Fostering innovation has never been so easy!

Our Launch Boxes contain all you need to get started with engaging and rich learning activities for students.

The kits are designed for individual and class purchases. Schools can mix and match to suit their budgets.

Hatching an Idea

Hi. I’m Phillipa and I’m passionate about ensuring that all kids love to learn. 

After 20 years of primary teaching I set up Hatch as a way to support young people and educators in exploring the new possibilities that can be achieved in a world of ever-expanding technologies. 

We focus on helping our young people to help themselves,  to problem solve collaboratively, and to be resilient in the face of adversity. This gives them the skills necessary to be innovative and creative citizens who contribute to a positive future.
