Tech Cube

Establishing Taipei American School as the premier center for K-12 STEAM excellence in all of Asia.

Read more about The Tech Cube in Dr. Hennessy's Fall 2016 Window Article.

Taipei American School continually strives for excellence. Just a few years ago, gifts from generous donors allowed us to start the Robotics and Scientific Research programs in the upper school. The program quickly grew and now, over 42% of our upper school students elect to take additional robotics, scientific research, and computer science courses. The interest does not stop there. Our elementary age learners are programing simple machines in KA, blending arts and science with the use of 3D printers in fifth grade, and creatively engineering prosthetic hand prototypes as they move into middle school. Simply put, student appetite and aptitude in STEAM calls for new, dedicated learning space for each division. This high-level blending of disciplines and use of design thinking is at the heart of the Tech Cube.

Inspired by MIT’s facility, the Tech Cube provides the canvas for 21 century learning that will give TAS students the necessary skills and experience they need to make a real difference in the world. The 4,380 square meters of usable space provides unique opportunities for all of our students. For example, upper school students will learn in an electrical engineering lab and design in a fabrication hub on the upper school floors. Highly advanced equipment, currently not found in any other high school lab in the world, will be available to our students. The middle school floor houses a VEX arena and robotic design lab, as well as vast open areas for art and innovation. Floor one, dedicated to lower school students, is designed to include “tinker and maker” spaces as well as an amphitheater. These are just a few of the exciting spaces that will be available when the Tech Cube opens.

Being true to our mission for students “to be prepared to adapt and succeed anywhere in a rapidly changing world,” the Tech Cube is scheduled for completion in December 2018. It truly is an exciting time to be at TAS as we open doors and minds with this state-of-the-art facility.

Naming Opportunities give the School the opportunity to thank you for your generous support. These gifts may be paid out over three years. Thank you for your interest in these major gift level contributions. For more information, please contact the development office at development@tas.edu.tw or 2873-9900 ext. 333.

Students Share Their Tech

At this year's Parent outreach events, students from all three divisions presented to parents different engineering and robotics learning taking place at Taipei American School. Programs like these will benefit from dedicated spaces in the Tech Cube.


Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE WILL THE TECH CUBE BE LOCATED?

The Tech Cube will be located between the lower and upper fields. Upper school students will access the Tech Cube from the sky bridge that connects to B Block. Lower and middle school students will access the Tech Cube from the ground floor. Large columns will raise the base of the Tech Cube off the ground to provide ease of traffic flow between the two fields, as well as access to the ground floor of the Tech Cube.

WHEN WILL THE TECH CUBE BE COMPLETED?

Completion of the Tech Cube is expected December 2018.

HOW BIG IS THE TECH CUBE?

The Tech Cube will house 4,380 square meters of space, spread out over five floors.

WILL THE TECH CUBE TAKE UP USE OF ANY ATHLETIC FIELDS?

The Tech Cube is scheduled to be built directly between the lower and upper fields, and when complete, will not take up any field space. During construction, approximately 7% of the upper field will not be available for use, but this is only during the construction phase.

HOW WILL THE TECH CUBE BE FUNDED?

Since tuition covers the daily operations of the School, to enhance the educational experience and expedite the strategic plan, we rely on the generosity of our community. Gifts to Building Excellence will provide necessary funding for the Tech Cube. A lead donation kicked off this project, and several major gifts have helped us make great progress toward our goal. Nonetheless, we need additional funding from parents and alumni to fully fund the project, and ask for your support.

HOW CAN I MAKE A GIFT TO SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE TECH CUBE?

You can make your gift to the Annual Giving Program online at www.tas.edu.tw/give. To make a gift claimable for tax deduction in Taiwan, please contact the Development Office at development@tas.edu.tw or by phone at 02-2873-9900 ext. 512 or ext. 821.

WHY DOESN’T TUITION COVER THE COST OF BUILDING THE TECH CUBE?

Tuition covers the operating budget at Taipei American School. Donations from generous parents to the Annual Giving Program accelerate the priorities laid out in the Strategic Plan. The construction of the Tech Cube is one such priority. Therefore, we rely on generous donations in order to build the Tech Cube.

WILL THE TECH CUBE BE AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY BUILDING?

The new building is planned to achieve the Bronze Level of Environmental Certification in Taiwan. This EEWH (Ecology, Energy, Waste Reduction, and Health) certification will recognize the Tech Cube as an environmentally compliant building.
