Our Story

May 2020
     Just an Idea

When the pandemic hit, members of the WWP North Science Olympiad team were bored, and they wanted to teach local kids science. So, they made a website and told people about the new service - ScioVirtual.

July 2020
     A local camp

The first ScioVirtual camp, ScioCamp, was run, offering 16 classes to hundreds of students - everyone had fun teaching and learning, and it was a successful charity initiative that donated $10,000 to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

September 2020
     
Year-long classes

As the pandemic still raged on, ScioVirtual began to offer 11-week classes all year round in a multitude of topics.

March 2021
     An education platform

ScioVirtual saw great growth, amounting to over forty school teachers registering their classes, hundreds of instructors, and thousands of students nationwide.

July 2021
     
ScioCamp 2021

ScioVirtual hosted ScioCamp once again, but with a unique twist: the ScioCamp challenges. Over 350 students competed for scholarship money amounting to $2,000 through interactive team challenges.

November 2021
     A new start

After ScioCamp 2021, the team rebuilt to restructure the entire organization, focusing on improving course quality over quantity. Also, Brian made a mad hard website design.

What Makes Us Unique?

Every student has a goal, whether it be doing well in school, winning a specific competition, or getting into a specific college.

However, most students are left alone and need guidance. The best way to achieve these goals is to learn directly from those who have achieved them.

ScioVirtual allows young students to directly learn from older successful students in small classes where they get personalized mentorship in achieving their goals. All instructors are high-achieving students from internnational medalists to lab researchers.

No other organization provides high quality mentorship from successful students at this scale.

"You guys are AMAZING! PERIOD. Thanks for making the website! I think this encourages people to answer more."

"Ms. Hir, you are one of the most enthusiastic teachers' I've met! Your passion of Chemistry really shines through you're teaching, and if you continued teaching, I would definitely come to your classes. During the Chemistry classes, I learned so much from you, and you made them fun and interactive, with the right amount of questions! This was my favorite course throughout the ScioVirtual camps, and I wanted to let you know that you and you're teaching styles are awesome!"

"It’s a great activity for summer. It’s intense but my girl loves it and really learned a lot. She also made a lot of friends on her team."

- Parent of 6th grader from Mason, Ohio
