Computer Science Live: Quby
Students learned how feedback works by taking a look inside Toon, the smart thermostat Quby developed for Eneco, a Dutch energy company. Using NewTechKids’ signature ‘no tech’ approach to teaching computer science, kids then used thermometers, ice and hair dryers to show how much data and information computers process to run smart energy systems.
As one student remarked, “Wow! Toon processes a lot of data to maintain constant temperatures.”
