Winchester Public Schools is one of our latest Unruly schools, and we could not be more thrilled to help them integrate computer science and active play throughout the school day. Educators from John Kerr Elementary and Garland Quarles Elementary are pioneering this initiative with Unruly Splats.

"We know that kids learn best when they're given time for play, which is why we do four 15 minute recesses every day," said Jenny Ramsey, a computer science integration coach at Garland Quarles Elementary

Garland Quarles Elementary and John Kerr Elementary are using Splats as a part of their METRICs program, an immersive approach to computer science education focused on integration across the curriculum to boost traditionally underrepresented, high-need student achievement. The Splats purchase was made available to Winchester because of their recent reward of the $4 million Education Innovation and Research Early-Phase grant from the U.S. Department of Education. 

"As Virginia and other states plan to add computer science to state testing requirements, it's critical that we innovate computer science education and introduce it at earlier ages," said Jennifer LaBombard-Daniels, PhD, a METRICS grant specialist for Winchester Public Schools. "Unruly Splats are a way to integrate computer science into subjects like math and language arts in a way that's fun and accessible for both students and teachers."

We are looking forward to seeing the impact Unruly Splats has on the students’ personal and academic growth within the district-wide METRICs program. Check out the full press release, click here.
