Unruly Splats is an educational product for kids that combines coding with physically active plays. Splats are programmable floor buttons that light up, make noise, and respond to touch. I built the Unruly Portal, which allows teachers to plan with all of Unruly Studios' lessons, manage their class with the Classroom Manager, and engage with community events.

The new Unruly Portal allows teachers to plan with all of Unruly Studios' lessons, manage their class with the Classroom Manager, and engage with the startup's events. Easing back into the classroom can be difficult, so we’re here with systems to make your life easier! These new features will allow more time for coding, playing, and being Unruly!
The new filtering system enables you to find the perfect coding activity for your needs in just moments. Simply filter through Computer Science (CSTA) grade level, subject, or class size to choose an activity and plan your lesson!
Unruly Splats are known for bringing teachers from all over the country together. Teachers who use Unruly Splats are always coming up with creative lesson plans that deserved to be shared with others. As a result, I implemented a library of community-created content. Unruly educators and students from all across America and Canada have been busy making games and lessons for the whole Unruly Community to enjoy.
A personalized Favorites Library makes it convenient for you to quickly pull up your go-to Splats games and get your students coding and playing in just a few clicks! It might be tricky not to favorite them all but we know you can resist. Additionally, the library covers an assortment of videos and webinars that demonstrate some of our most popular Unruly games and activities. It makes learning a new coding activity simple and easy, regardless of block-coding experience.
In the Unruly Portal, teachers can upload their Google Classroom rosters and use a color system to organize their students into groups in the new Classroom Manager. This makes it easier for Unruly educators to access student work and organize students by grade or otherwise. When creating a profile, you can use a randomly generated name or have your students use their real names so it is easier to identify them. This will allow you to create a naming system that makes it efficient to check student work.
