Nä Pua No’eau Summer Vex IQ Workshop!

On June 8th, HVR partnered with the Nä Pua No’eau program of UH Hilo to bring STEM education to the Hawaiian students in our community. Nä Pua No’eau  is a program who’s purpose is to increase educational enrichment opportunities for Hawaiian students from grades K-12. The students of Nä Pua No’eau worked one on one with HVR members to build a robot using our Vex IQ kits. At the end of the day, we ran a competition among them to see who who could use their robot to score the most tennis balls.

Overall, it was a very fun and exciting workshop. The students of the Nä Pua No’eau program are some of the most enthusiastic people we have reached out to.
