Public Outreach

Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium members are involved in a variety of projects to increase public awareness, understanding, and support of space and planetary sciences. We have presented aerospace exhibitions at Windward Community College and Windward Mall, astronomy demonstrations and public observing nights at Leeward Community College, and Space Days at Honolulu Community College. Space Grant personnel also join with other planetary geoscientists at U. H. Manoa to hold biannual open houses for the community. These open houses are popular excursions for school groups on Oahu. Visitors learn about astronomy, planetary exploration, meteorites, observing Earth from space, and more through lectures, displays, demonstrations, and hands-on activities. Further outreach lectures, open-house presentations, displays, classroom visits, Future Flight Hawai‘i exhibitions and summer programs, PSR Discoveries, our on-line science magazine, and these web pages are coordinated from the U. H. Manoa campus.

  • Space Explorers FESTival (FEST=families exploring science together) - Children and their parents are partners in a night of discovery and hands on science experiences. The free program, offered to schools statewide to two thousand participants annually, features science demonstrations, group science inquiry hands on activities, information about NASA supported educational opportunities (NASA Explorer Schools, scholastic robotics programs, Future Flight Hawai‘i), and selected hands on activities for students and parents. Presented by Future Flight Hawai‘i Directors Art and Rene Kimura. See a flyer for Space Explorers BrushBot FEST. Read more about FEST activities in this article from Honolulu Advertiser published Feb. 28, 2002 by Scott Ishikawa.
