An exciting component of Hawaii’s Woodshow is the Innovation + Imagination (I+I) Student Challenge, a division that was initiated in 2017 to introduce students to the diverse world of Hawai‘i woods.  Students are challenged to construct artwork using a mixture of donated Hawai‘i-grown wood and other materials of their choice.

The Student Challenge is coordinated by Steven Hill, IDSA, the 3DLab Director at UHM School of Architecture. The program exposes students to a hands-on experience of design and production as well as familiarizes them with the value of using locally sourced resources. This year, 38 students from UH-Mānoa School of Architecture, Brigham Young University–Hawaii, Maui High Schools, Mid-Pacific Owl Robotics and Punahou School participated in the Challenge.
