Student innovator donates 3D printer to Native Hawaiian culture center

Posted: Updated:

(HawaiiNewsNow) - As part of the SKAI Ventures Youth Innovator program, students from a wide variety of schools -- including Iolani, Punahou, Taipei American School and Johns Hopkins University -- spent most of their summers working with scientists, CEOs and business leaders to learn about a fast-paced and entrepreneurial culture at a world-class technology incubator.

The students -- ranging from ages 15 to 22 -- made their own significant contributions during their six weeks at SKAI Ventures. Riley Lewis, a 15-year-old youth innovator from Silicon Valley, will donate a 3D printer that he built to Marae Ha'a Koa -- a Native Hawaiian culture center -- for the students residing on the Leeward Coast of Oahu.
