- Offer Profile
- Also known as Team Kika Mana,
we are a FIRST Robotics team composed of students from President William
McKinley High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. We were founded in 1999 and we
offer members endless opportunities to enrich their educations through
practical applications of science, technology, engineering, and math.
- FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity
sport of the mind designed to help high school students discover how
interesting and rewarding the life of engineers and researchers can be.
FIRST challenges teams of young people and their mentors to solve a common
problem in a six-week timeframe using a standard "kit of parts" and a common
set of rules. Teams build robots from the parts and enter them in a series
of competitions designed by Dean Kamen, Dr. Woodie Flowers, and a committee
of engineers and other professionals.
FIRST redefines 'winning' for participants. Teams are rewarded for
excellence in design, demonstrated team spirit, gracious professionalism,
maturity, and ability to overcome obstacles. Winning is a secondary goal,
but means forming lasting partnerships.
What is unique about the FRC program?
- It is a sport where participants play with professionals and learn

adrenaline as conventional varsity tournaments

Join us as we embark on our first FRC regional at our hometown; competing
against 39 other teams from Hawaii, Louisiana, and Taiwan. A whole new
competition awaits for our very own drive team as they prepare to rebound
Mahalo to teams 2090 and 3881, for being great alliance partners in the
elimination matches, literally until the very end. Going through three sets
of tiebreaker is tiring, but you folks gave your best efforts on each match
that we applaud your tenacity.
Central Valley Regional
Follow us in our adventure to California - before, during, and after the
inaugural event of the Central Valley Regional. Even though Team 368 had
prior experience from Hawaii Regional, it's no easy journey for the only
Hawaii team with 47 teams competing; some of which are previous world
Mahalo to teams 1266 and 2643, for being amazing alliance partners in our
8th seeded alliance for elimination matches. We knew we were going against
the 1st seeded alliance in quarterfinals, but we made sure they worked hard
for those wins by working together in stacking a lot of points through
hybrid, tele-op, and balancing.
