CIO Maker School

Introduction

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.

Sky Kids 2019 Camp Partner

Sky Kids has arranged for our students (ages 7-12) to join the CIO Maker program from July 15 - August 9.* This is a local camp environment with students from the Greater Taipei area as well as some foreign participants during the summer period. Each summer week will have around 20-30 students, organized into small groups with teacher to student ratio at 1:4. Our camp partner will ensure that local students are the majority in the weeks we are participating, and we will also cap our own student attendance accordingly.
