Robot-HQ specializes in training teachers and students in the interesting fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Robotics as a subject incorporates all the above branches as an example of interdisciplinary STEM education. On top of this, teamwork is highly featured, especially in the yearly VEX robotics competitions.


Shou Yang Digital Technologies and Robot-HQ have a training center in Taipei, Taiwan, where we train educators and student teams using mostly VEX IQ and VEX EDR, but also other microcontrollers, such as Arduino and ESP32. The Internet Of Things is very high on our list of priorities, as this is a key field of knowledge for the future.


Frank Gibson started Robot-HQ in response to the growing need for STEM educators.


His educational background is in Digital & Industrial Electronics. He studied at the University of Pretoria as a technology teacher and is also a Carnegie Mellon University certified robotics instructor.
