Honowai Robotek

Advisor: Mr. Grant Kiyabu

The Honowai Robotek Team competes in the the First Lego League competition in the Fall and the Robofest competition in the Spring. Team members must show an interest in building with Legos and working well with others. Team members must also be willing to share their knowledge with others.

Honowai Robotek follows the following First Lego League core values:

  • "By embracing the Core Values, participants learn that friendly competition and mutual gain are not separate goals, and that helping one another is the foundation of teamwork.
  • We are a team.
  • We do the work to find solutions with guidance from our coaches and mentors.
  • We know our coaches and mentors don't have all the answers; we learn together.
  • We honor the spirit of friendly competition.
  • What we discover is more important than what we win.
  • We share our experiences with others.
  • We display Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition in everything we do.
  • We have FUN!"

Applications for Honowai Robotek are given every Fall and Spring. In the Fall, 5th and 6th grade students may apply. In the Spring, 4th and 5th grade students may apply.

Past accomplishments of Honowai Robotek include re-striping the road fronting Honowai Elementary to make the sidewalks safer for the community, being the Mayor's invited guests for the State of the City Address in 2010, receiving the Presentation Award at a District Tournament, and cleaning the lo'i at Na Mea Kupono in Waialua.
