First-Ever Online Robotics Class on Molokai
By Edwin Mendija
During this challenging time of distance/online learning, a group of 10 Molokai students completed the first-ever online robotics class hosted on Molokai. The pilot program took place over the course of six weeks, where students attended class via Zoom and did assignments emailed to them. In the class, students learned about STEM, robotics, how those two subjects are related, and basic coding/programming of a virtual robot. The class directly ties into and prepares students for VEX IQ Robotics Competition — which every elementary and middle school on-island participates in.
The next offering of this course is set to take place in the months of June and July. Students also receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course if all assignments are completed. If you have a student who is interested, please email Edwin Mendija at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact via phone/text at 808-658-0429.
