PUEO Invited Speaker – Searching for Asteroids from Space

Hōkūle‘a Celebration

Mahalo to Hōkūle‘a for all they are doing for Hawai’i.  We were extremely fortunate to have them visit us in Hilo and spend time with everyone.  They had a big day with over 2000 people touring their wa’a.  PUEO was humbled to be part of the event where we had hundreds of kids test their navigation skills with our underwater rover and we talked to many more about what we have been doing as an organization.  It was a fantastic day for everyone!

Nā Kilo Event at Palekai is on for Oct. 21!

Nā Kilo Event at Palekai is on for Oct. 21!

Nā Kilo is our cultural science event to get students of all ages interested and excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM fields).  Hawaii has many activities going on all around the island which lead the world in many areas.  This event is a chance for those people who are involved in leading such endeavors to show the public the kind of science they are doing right here in Hawaii. We invite people, groups and companies from all over the island to join us.  So if you’re interested in participating, please contact us either through this site or on facebook or twitter.  The term Nā Kilo represents those who understand a certain field or trade to its fullest and most importantly expresses the ability to observe and to explore. Nā Kilo can represent the master as well as their learners in any given discipline. Perhaps you’ve not thought about all the STEM activities that take place in Hawaii but here are just a few we would like to highlight.   SHARE! Twitter Facebook Reddit Pinterest...
