Come See What Molokai Keiki Discovered
By Diane Abraham
All of Molokai’s students, families and community members are invited to join 15 Molokai teachers and their classes on Wednesday, May 12 in the Kaunakakai School cafeteria from 5 – 7 p.m. to experience the wonders of Molokai through the scientific eyes of our keiki. Thanks to funding of the BWET Hookuleana project through the Alaka`ina Foundation, these dedicated teachers from Molokai’s public schools have been exploring our island with equipment through the Maui Digital School Bus. Students have measured water quality, dissolved oxygen, Ph, temperature, and air temperature, just to name a few things. They have evaluated their discoveries, developed hypothesis and scientific theories as to the results of their field data.
Along with that, Molokai keiki have also learned the importance of being good environmental stewards. Some have assisted with banding endangered Hawaiian coots to track them as they are released into the wild. Come join us for a gala celebration of a year’s worth of work, discovery and good fun. Refreshments provided.
