Taiwan's #1 STEAM educators

Skyrock
Projects

“Skyrock is on a mission to discover, nurture, and unleash the next generation of game changing inventors in the world. Today we’re here to introduce you to live and online STEAM Summer Camp.

Hands on STEAM learning is perfect for learning independently at home since the kids get to work in 3D with physical things instead of just working with 2D pixels and pages. Kids can build knowledge by making and experimenting instead of just listening and watching. However, it’s also the most challenging. It requires a lot of material preparation, some basic tools, and support with troubleshooting small problems. To overcome this, our team of designers, engineers, and educators have reimagined digital learning.

Learn from the best.
Skyrock teachers are top-tier educators in Taiwan, STEAM specialists, and creative pioneers.
