Unruly Splats are breaking down the barriers of coding school-wide! When Short Line Elementary School transitioned back to in-person learning this spring, PE teacher Mrs. McSweeney had a new activity planned that combined active play with learning to code. 

“Unruly Splats have been a great way to get kids active and learning coding concepts without even realizing it,” said Mrs. McSweeney. “As a PE teacher who has never coded before, I was amazed at how easy it was for me to learn how to use the Splats and teach the students how to manipulate them to create and modify their own games.”

Since Splats have been so successful in PE Class, Wetzel County Schools plan to roll out Unruly Splats to more schools and teachers across a variety of subjects in the fall to promote two major learning priorities in the district, physical education and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). 

“Unruly Splats show kids that learning how to code doesn’t have to be an isolated, sedentary experience in front of a dark computer screen,” said Dr. Eric S. Emch, a Technology Integration Specialist for Wetzel County who introduced Unruly Splats to the district. “We’re especially excited about how teachers can use the Splats to bring play and STEAM into any subject.”

The pandemic has heightened attention to student mental and physical health in West Virginia, where childhood obesity rates are some of the highest in the country. Splats are a great school-wide tool that empowers play, student engagement, and critical thinking skills. 

We look forward to seeing how far Wetzel County Schools goes with their exploration with Splats. Click here for the full press release.
