Mentoring, Robotics, and Fun

For 12 weeks, our engineers in Hawaii have been mentoring at-risk kids from the Hawaii National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Academy in robotics and technology, culminating in a competition on May 23, 2010. Held at the Hawaii National Guard's Kalaeloa facilities, the kids showcased their VEX robot system designs, programming skills, and dexterity in competitions testing their robots in autonomous and manually controlled modes.

Watch the competition in this video produced by one of our engineering student aides.

This event was sponsored in part by the National Defense Education Program (NDEP), which promotes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to K-12 students.
