Hilo Viking Robotics is a club based at Hilo High School on the Big Island of Hawaii. We pride ourselves in being a student driven club, meaning that the students are the ones that plan, decide, and take responsibility for all decisions from Robot design to planning community events. Our mission is to: “Prepare our members for whatever jobs & challenges they may face after high school, with each of them able to change the world in their own way.”

We participate in multiple robotics competitions, including FIRST and VEX.  To keep our club running as well as raise awareness about robotics in our community, we hold a robotics camp called Camp Eureka where we teach elementary school students the basics of robotics. Information about upcoming camps and club events will be posted in the recent news section.
