11th Annual Hawaii Robofest

11th Annual Hawaii Robofest

The 11th annual Hawaii Robofest Regional Event was held this year at Pearl City High School on Saturday, April 7th, 2018. There were 71 teams (breaking last year’s record) at the event from 17 different elementary and middle schools on Oahu.

A big “MAHALO!” to the Pearl City High School Robotics Club for hosting us again. Special thanks to our Ilima sponsor Friends of Hawaii Robotics, sponsor Hawaii Technology Development Corp and all our community partners for their generous support.

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!
