FIRST - For Inspiration and Recognition for Science and Technology


We are Team 4270: The Crusaders, an all-boys high school robotics team, representing Saint Louis School Hawaii in Honolulu, Hawaii.


Team 4270 originally started as Team 2440 in 2012 by Dwayne Yamaguchi. It then changed from 2440 to 4270, as the robotics program continued until 2014. After being dormant for two years, the robotics program was reintroduced to Saint Louis School in the 2016-2017 school year under the influence of Travis Takashima, a former robotics mentor from Farrington High school's robotics Team 2504: The Governors.


Within the first year after being dormant, our team become Hawaii Regional finalists with an alliance with Team 1661: Griffitrons and Team 3721: Charger Robotics, where we qualified for the FIRST World Championship in Houston. Hawai'i Star-Advertiser also wrote an article about being the highest-ranked team from Hawaii after the qualification matches. 


Our team is a family for those who admire STEM and want to get hands-on and learn more. With the influence of FIRST, our students can learn more about different professional machines and software: AutoDesk Inventor for 3D-modeling and lathe, CNC, drill press, etc. for machine and assembly work. We embrace different cultures and open a world-view perspective by traveling nationally and internationally.
