Friends of Hawaii Robotics is a registered Hawaii 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, non-partisan organization.

Recognizing the importance of promoting robotics at an early age, and sustaining students’ interest in STEM education, “Friends” supports Hawaii’s nine robotics programs in elementary, middle, and high schools statewide.

As stressed in the National Academies report Rising Above the Gathering Storm, “…students must acquire such skills as adaptability, complex communication, social skills, non-routine problem solving, self-management, and systems thinking to compete in the modern economy.” Hands-on robotics education has proven to be a successful STEM education pathway through which students become engaged with learning and their passion is ignited.

Friends of Hawaii Robotics’ year-round mission and commitment is to create additional opportunities for students to develop essential 21st-century life skills, which prepare them to become Hawaii’s leaders of tomorrow.
