Unruly Splats

Unruly Splats introduces coding for kids through physically active games. Students program Splats with our block coding app and write the rules that tell Splats when to light up and make sounds when they are stomped on! Students code their own games with Splats and play them with classmates! Think whack-a-mole, relay races, and red light green light! Splats are built to be stomped on and are iPad and Chromebook compatible.
