The Tech Cube Program
The state-of-the-art Solomon Wong Tech Cube building for robotics, computer science, and engineering opened for schoolwide use in SY 2018-2019 and, since then, technological learning on our campus has exploded. This incredible facility has established Taipei American School as the center for KA-12 STEAM excellence in the Asia-Pacific region.
But the Tech Cube is more than a building; it's a schoolwide learning program and mindset that all Tigers have embraced.
The Sky is the Limit
Inspired by the MIT Media Lab, the Solomon Wong Tech Cube provides the canvas for 21st century learning that gives TAS students the necessary skills and experience they need to make a real difference in the world. The 4,380 square meters of flexible and creative space provides unique opportunities for all of our students.
By the Numbers
Our students win a lot of hardware for their hard and soft STEAM skills and projects — but that's not what motivates them or their teachers. While external accomplishments are appreciated, our Tech Cube program places a greater emphasis on learning from failure than it does traditional forms of "success."
TAS teams have won 30+ FRC Awards including Winning 12 "Blue Banners" at FIRST Robotics Competitions.
A TAS team has qualified for the FRC world championship every year for the last 13 years.
All students take STEAM-related courses in Lower, Middle and Upper School, including a computer science & robotics course graduation requirement.
TAS was the first FRC team in all the East and Southeast Asia region, and our students have helped start 36 robotics teams in Taiwan.
This is the 13th year that TAS will host its annual Vex Formosa International Robotics Competition, which includes teams from all around the world.
In the Tech Cube, students organize outreach events to enhance island-wide STEM education, and our teams have received the FRC Chairmans/Impact award four times for their significant contributions.
