The Maui News reported Monday that the Molokai High School robotics team won the Hopper-Turing Division Rookie Inspiration Award at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Championship in Houston from Wednesday to Saturday.

Molokai’s “Team 7724” did not plan on attending the event but received unexpected financial support from the community and a fellow robotics team at ?Iolani School in Honolulu.

?Iolani School donated a $5,000 NASA grant earned at the Hawaii regional competition and started a GoFundMe page for Molokai that raised $13,075.
