      UH System Ethnomathematics and STEM Institute

      In an effort to address issues of equitable and quality education, culturally responsive science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pedagogy is explored across the State of Hawai'i and Pacific based on the Mathematics Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). We strive to advance a coordinated effort focused on ethnomathematics and the needs of culturally diverse learners, with the aim of informing research and deepening practice within and outside of the classroom. The Ethnomathematics and STEM Institute brings together research institutions and community-based organizations including the University of Hawai'i System, Hawai'i State Department of Education, Pacific American Foundation, Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Hawai'i P-20 Partnerships for Education, and the Polynesian Voyaging Society to support professional development for P-20 STEM educators and students.

      Hōkūle‘a Worldwide Voyage from Hawai‘i to Tahiti—Navigation Report

      Founded on a legacy of Pacific Ocean exploration, the Polynesian Voyaging Society seeks to perpetuate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) principles of traditional voyaging and the spirit of exploration through experiential educational programs that inspire students and their communities to respect and care for themselves, each other, and their natural and cultural environments. The following video of Dr. Linda Furuto was taken on the first international leg of Hōkūle’a’s Worldwide Voyage from Hawai‘i to Tahiti (http://www.hokulea.com).

      Hōkūle‘a Worldwide Voyage from Samoa to Olohega—Punahou School Shout Out

      Embedded in the story of the Polynesian Voyaging Society and the culture that created her is the story of a 2000-year-old relationship with special islands and the sea. It is a story that was almost lost, and was close to extinction. But ultimately it is a story of survival, rediscovery, and the restoration of pride and dignity. It is a story of a society revaluing its relationship to its island home. It is a story that is crucially important as the world’s populations struggle with the ability to live in balance with our island that we call Earth. It is a story that is still being written for our children and all future generations. The following video of Dr. Linda Furuto was taken on the third international leg of Hōkūle’a’s Worldwide Voyage from Samoa to Olohega on board Hikianalia as a shout out to Punahou School (http://www.hokulea.com, http://www.punahou.edu).
