Keaholoa STEM Program
Promoting Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Education




Keaholoa STEM uses an Outreach Program that builds a strong sense of idenity, raises career goals, educational aspirations, and provides meaningful learning experiences through STEM courses and other activities. Keaholoa will reach into the local community in a way that respects and values Hawaiian culture and builds upon the potential for academic achievement in Hawaiian youth. We are partnering with Na Pua No'eau- Center For Gifted and Talented Native Hawaiian Children at UHH, to take advantage of the proven educational practices and statewide resources developed by them over eleven years of 11 years of successful outreach to native Hawaiian communities.

Outreach Program Elements:
  • Super Enrichment Saturdays (k-12 students)
  • Summer Institute (K - 12 students)
  • Hawaiian Family Affair (Entire families)
  • 'Ike - Inspiring Knowledge Expansion: High School/College Mentoring Program
    • The aim of this endeavor is to provide an opportunity for High school students to explore the STEM fields under the mentorship of Keaholoa STEM interns, faculty mentors and Hawaiian cultural advisors. Prospective high school students will be engaged in a range of activities and events directed at developing both academic and cultural knowledge of the student.
