Daniel K. Inouye Elementary School's robotics program consists of VEX IQ and EV3 teams.   
Cyborg Eagles is our VEX IQ team consisting of fourth and fifth graders.  We meet one to two times a week after school under the guidance of coaches Tami Sego and Vera Yamanaka.  Students build and program VEX IQ robots to perform various tasks.  The team participates in local and statewide competitions throughout the year.  In 2014 our VEX IQ team qualified and competed at a World Competition.

The Junior Robotics team starts in the spring.  They build and program robots after school using the Lego EV3 format.  The coaches are Jerilyn Schaefer and Sara Urabe.
Both teams will participate in the Leilehua Complex STEAM Saturday in Wahiawā in April.

If you are interested in being a part of the robotics program watch for the flyer for team tryouts!  Students must follow the GLOs and display Eagles Pride.




This past week we’ve seen a ton of excitement around Code Break, our weekly live-interactive classroom. Episode 1 featuring Hill Harper had students join in real-time from every U.S. state, and from as far as India, Argentina, and Greece. Here’s a 30 second clip of the highlights:

Next week, we'll welcome not one but two special guests: entrepreneur, CEO, and “shark”, Mark Cuban, as well as model, actress, and software developer, Lyndsey Scott.

We have a super fun class planned, with activities to engage young ones and a special live-coding interaction older students won’t want to miss! Students will pitch app ideas, and the audience will pick their favorite for us to rapid-prototype. Sign up to join each week's classroom and to receive weekly activities and unique opportunities to participate interactively in the episode. 

We also continue to expand our recommended resources for learning computer science at home. We’ve included options for those who may have limited internet or computer access, as well as a variety of activities, videos, and courses.

Help us build the world's largest live-interactive classroom
Last week, while millions were stuck at home alone, over ten thousand students and parents joined together for a live Code Break. As special guest Hill Harper so eloquently said, “if the virus can spread, so can love, support, and learning.” Help us grow to a hundred thousand! Each of you can invite other parents, students, and even entire schools to join. Share this email, or share our posts on Twitter, or Facebook, and help us build the world’s largest live-interactive classroom!

During this pandemic and time of global stress, thank you for trusting us with the opportunity to teach your children.
