The Prince William Board of County Supervisors has authorized a $100,000 performance agreement with Scriyb, a technology startup company based at the Virginia Serious Games Institute, to pioneer a new cloud-based live-streaming teaching platform for online education. Scriyb’s online platform will be used to deliver the project lessons to the students of two participating Prince William County public high schools — Forest Park and Potomac.

This agreement allows Scriyb to scale up and deliver on its mission of engaging STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) K–12 students, who will potentially be a future generation of workers able to address high skill shortage needs regionally and nationally…

…The Prince William Board of County Supervisors authorized an agreement between Scriyb and the Industrial Development Authority (IDA) of Prince William County and assigned a $100,000 grant from the Prince William County Economic Development Opportunity Fund (EDOF). The conditions of the grant require Scriyb to receive matching funds from the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Center for Innovative Technology GAP Funds, maintain five full-time staff positions, and relocate to commercial space in the county along with 13 full-time hires and $25,000 in equipment by the end of December 2017.
