Robot-HQ specializes in training teachers and students in the interesting fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. Robotics as a subject incorporates all the above subject areas and is an excellent example of interdisciplinary STEAM education. Robotics also lends itself well to colaboration and teamwork, valuable skills for real life and a successful career.
Robot-HQ and the distributors of VEX Robotics have a training center in Taipei, Taiwan, where we train educators, students and teams. Our primary focus is on VEX IQ and VEX EDR, but we also use other platforms, such as Arduino and ESP32, which is very useful for making Internet Of Things projects. IOT is a key field of knowledge for the future.
