unruly studios - make your own rules

Unruly Studios

Unruly Studios has created the first STEM toy that teaches kids to code AND get them active. #activeSTEMplay
Unruly Studios is an edtech startup that creates interactive experiences to empower kids with critical STEM skills while encouraging physical play and social engagement. Our products get kids moving around and engaging with the whole room for the their first ever experience of Active STEM Play. Unruly Studios is the only edtech kids product in the market that makes learning technical STEM skills energetic, playful and fun! We are creating experiences that ensure a holistic development for kids' physical, intellectual, and social. 
Most STEM products in the market depend entirely on screens for play. The problem with teaching kids through this medium in isolation is that all the learning is passive. Kids create something online or code a robot and watch it perform the actions as instructed. There is no physical involvement of the child in this experience created by them and much of the time spent playing and learning is sedentary, filling this gap in the market Unruly Studios provides active learning and active play experiences, which get kids up and moving around while learning crucial STEM skills.
