Fish Tank is a NexTech STEM competition that invites Hawaii County youth to solve real-world problems for a chance to win recognition and prizes. Our first competition will focus on the problem of plastic pollution, an important and urgent local problem – Hawaii Island generates over 60 tons of plastic waste every day!

The first competition launched on January 11, 2020, and is now in progress! Fish Tank teams have been formed and are starting on their projects. Stay tuned for Competition Day, planned for April 25, 2020!
