CYBERSKY is an educational brand, under the parent company STAIRS ACADEMY, that symbolizes all things in the digital world, including stories, photos, art, music, film, television, radio, podcasts, distance learning, online gaming and more.
The Cybersky website was first launched as a teacher page by Musician, Educator & Technologist Graeme “Mr. Cybersky” Sibirsky, as a place to post his students’ songs, photos and videos. Later, it was reimagined as a video channel for educational tutorials, interviews, documentaries and podcasts, about a range of topics, including technology, education, health, fitness, martial arts and Rubik’s Cube strategies.
