On May 1, 2018, Hawaii Business Magazine published an article on STEM education and student-led robotics teams across Hawaii, and cited HawaiiKidsCAN:
David Miyashiro, executive director of HawaiiKidsCAN, a nonprofit that aims to build an equitable education system, says many educators are interested in teaching computer science: “People are realizing the economy is changing dramatically and yet it’s not clear if the education system is responsive enough of that change.
“As an organization focusing on equity, I think our challenge and our opportunity is how do we help the system recognize these skills in robotics or computer science. It’s not something secondary, it’s not for geeky kids or the gifted and talented. It’s about helping our kids access this new economy.”
