Our collaborators at RoboNation are holding their first in-person Robo Sub competition in several years! RoboNation hosts several international robotics competitions, in which students grow their love for robotics and bulid real-world skills they’ll need in the workforce, and in life. They engage over 250,000 students each year!
In 2018, HI FusionED partnered with RoboNation to help host the international Maritime RobotX Challenge on Sand Island! In addition to the rigorous autonomous maritime vehicle competition for university-level teams from across the world, there was also a hands-on science and engineering fair for Hawaii’s K-12 students. Students were able to drive tethered underwater robots, learn to tie maritime knots from the Polynesian Voyaging Society, play with 3D printers, explore NOAA science centers, and more! They also got to talk story with the RobotX competition teams and see the competitors in action!
