9th Annual Hawaii Robofest Regional – Results

The 9th annual Hawai‘i Robofest Regional Event was held this year at Pearl City High School on Saturday, April 9th, 2016. There were 56 teams at the event from 17 different elementary and middle schools and about 70 additional students who participated in intraschool trial events.

A big “MAHALO!” to the Pearl City High School Robotics Club for hosting us this year. Special thanks to our Sponsors and Community partners for their generous support and to the over 100 community volunteers who helped make the event a resounding success!

Last, but not least, KUDOS to all the coaches, parents, teachers and school administrators for their support and to all the hard working students who demonstrated their innovative minds and technical skills. Well done!
