"Computing isn't about computers,” remarks Paul Curzon, one of CS4FN’s authors. Computer science, or CS, “is about people, solving puzzles, creativity, changing the future and, most of all, having fun.” As educators, that’s what we’re aiming for, isn’t it? Learning and fun.
Coding is being incorporated into elementary and middle school classrooms to inspire new ways of thinking and arm students with necessary CTE skills. According to code.org, as of 2019, almost all 50 states have passed laws mandating CS be taught in K12. To meet this need, Unruly Splats is becoming one of the most in-demand coding solutions in K-8 schools and is the only all-access K-8 STEM platform that combines coding with movement. Unruly Splats is run by experts in cognitive science, toy manufacturing, education, and technology with the vision of building fun learning tools and experiences for the young people who will create the future.

Let’s dig in to how coding helps all learners.
