Robotics

As we move forward within the 21st Century, ‘Iolani School has continued its commitment to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education with a passionate dedication to robotics at all levels in the Lower and Upper School.

Starting with FIRST Lego League (FLL) in Lower School (Grades 4-8) and moving on to VEX Robotics (Middle/High School) and  FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) in Upper School (Grades 9-12), students experience the thrill and challenge of researching, developing, programming, and building their own robot to solve problems and surmount obstacles in the most efficient and effective manner.

Robotics competitions feel very much like athletic competitions as you witness the passion of the students, their experiences with team dynamics, and their dedication to their ‘sport.’ However, robotics also provides a critical bridge for students between their classroom work in mathematics, technology, and science and the solving of real world problems that matter to the student. Come, join us, and experience the classic thrills of victory and agonies of defeat in a new venue.

"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders."

--Dean Kamen, Founder, FIRST Robotics
