Waialua-McKinley-Campbell alliance wins regional robotics competition
An alliance of robotics teams from Waialua, McKinley and Campbell High Schools took first place in the 2010 BAE Systems FIRST in Hawai'i Robotics competition, earning a bid to the national championships in Georgia next month.
Today's final round of competition, held at the Stan Sheriff Center, pitted the Waialua-McKinley-Campbell team against an alliance composed of teams from Sacred Hearts Academy, Punahou High School and Honoka'a High School.
In addition to the three winning schools, Kalani High School, Kaua'i Island School, Ka'u High School and Sacred Hearts Academy have also qualified to attend the 2010 FIRST Championships, which runs April 15 to 17 in Atlanta.
Nearly 1,000 students representing 24 local high schools and four Mainland schools participated in the competition.
