SCIO in Schools
Junior High School
We have tested SCIO across many different types of users. From middle school students to parents teaching their children, SCIO has proven its effectiveness.
SCIO was selected for two separate 50 minute classes to teach programming at the 2015 Annual Encuentros Leadership Conference. Encuentros Leadership was formed to address the critical educational, social and economic issues impacting the quality of education and life opportunities for Latino boys.
Ages ranged from 10-16, and every student who participated wrote a program to create a light show. Many were so motivated that they stayed after the session to learn more.
High School and College students learned programming and STEM concepts with SCIO in a three day small group intensive.
The experience included writing programs to recognize hand gestures, using the sensors to measure and graph the frequency of room lights, remotely controlling devices plugged in to outlets, detecting motion, controlling the playing of music with push buttons, detecting tilting and jolting of the board, sending text messages and emails, along with many underlying concepts that allow for creation of new programs.
