For many years, Hilo Viking Robotics has been working on starting a robotics program at Hilo Intermediate School. At the beginning of this September we were finally able to start working with a group of 8th graders building robots using our Vex IQ kits. Gradually we were able to gather more students, get the team registered, and find funding for the team.
Starting during the second quarter, Hilo Intermediate School will have a robotics program as part of the Uplink program. Uplink participants can participate in several after school activities including robotics. Interested Students can pick up an Uplink application packet at Hilo Intermediate School’s front office, or download the form here.
HVR hopes to have a successful partnership with the Hilo Intermediate Robotics team and Uplink program.
