Space Grant activities at U. H. Hilo reflect the institution's small, liberal arts college environment. Undergraduate Space Grant Fellows have worked with faculty mentors on land use analysis using satellite images, comparative volcanology, and curriculum development at both the university and primary levels. Space Grant offers a 3-unit course, "Space Science for the Elementary Classroom" for both in-service and pre-service teachers and sponsors workshops for teachers and community members on the use of the internet. Space Grant supports activities for the development and support of space science curricula in the schools. Space Grant also works cooperatively with other university and government agencies in developing and publicizing the Island of Hawai‘i as a center of space science education.
