CIO Maker School
CIO Maker School makes technical stuff easy and fun for students 7 -12 years old! Working with Taipei area students, CIO is a group of optimistic, empathetic and passionate professionals who specialize in “digital maker” education for children. The goal of CIO (Creativity, Innovation, Optimist) is to provide educational projects that benefit society and the environment. Through "design thinking", "hands-on activities" and "passionate sharing", everyone can realize their potential to design, and create original solutions to build a better world.
Our teaching is based on the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) approach. Our goal is to inspire students to solve problems and learn through play.
Innovation: Learn to use various materials and skills to convert original thinking into creations.
Circuits: Learn to use electrical circuits through hands-on activities.
Logical analysis: Develop observation and problem solving skills by collaborating with team members to work through different challenges (e.g. escape room).
Programming: Learn how to integrate software and hardware.
Design thinking: Learn to solve problems through imaginative role-play.
Story-telling: Learn to think thoroughly and share design concepts through active story-telling.
