The 12th annual Hawaii Robofest Regional Qualifier was held this year at Pearl City High School on Saturday, April 13th, 2019. 46 teams from 11 different schools competed for trophies in several autonomous robotics activities.
A big “MAHALO!” to the Pearl City High School Robotics Club for hosting us again. Special thanks to our prime sponsors Bank of Hawaii Foundation and partner, Friends of Hawaii Robotics.
Last, but not least, KUDOS to all the coaches, parents, teachers, school administrators and community volunteers for their support and to all the hard working students who demonstrated their innovative minds and technical skills. Well done!
