Aloha! We’re FIRST Team 359 of Waialua Robotics, a.k.a. the Hawaiian Kids! We proudly represent Hawaii as not only the first FRC team, but also as the first robotics-related program in the state! We have been a part of FIRST since 1999 and have participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition for thirteen years. Comprised of a relatively small and dedicated group of diverse students, mentors, and volunteers, we strive to transform the culture of our plantation community through the values of FIRST. As our motto says: It’s not about winning…. It’s about teamwork, commitment, and responsibility!
