Aloha & Welcome to Tiki Technologies
Aloha from Kailua-Kona,on the Big Island of Hawaii! We are FIRST team 3880, the Tiki Techs of Kealakehe High School. Since our start in 2010 , we have been inspired to establish a program capable of enriching current and future Hawaii residents in their academic ambitions. Promoting STEM throughout our community and establishing a stable program that incorporates our schools career pathway classes into the program, we hope to give people an opportunity of a lifetime. We have participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition since 2011 and have qualified to compete at the international competition in our 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 seasons. Our motto is Kūlia i ka nu’u which means ‘strive for the summit’ accompany us as we strive to teach students important life skills to become leaders of this rapidly changing world.
Kealakekehe Robotics team is holding the second West Hawaii STEM Camp to promote science, technology, engineering, and math in our community. We hope to empower creative minds and inspire the younger generation to become leaders in our ever changing world. STEM will play a big role in the future of Hawaii. We need to work together to make sure our local students will be the conductors of that future. It starts with exposing the students to the truth: science is really fun and being a nerd is kind of a wonderful thing. Who better to share that with our keiki than the “cool” high schoolers?
