Science Program Funding Available

Ho`okuleana News Release

Molokai teachers of grades K-6 can apply now to Ho`okuleana, a professional development program that offers a $750 stipend and technology to each participating teacher.  The program’s focus is on providing teachers with training and tools to conduct ahupua`a monitoring projects with their students during this 2010-11 school year. Teachers must participate in two workshops throughout the year.  Space is limited for teacher participation, so interested teachers are urged to apply right away.

The program is sponsored by the Alaka`ina Foundation, the organization that operates the Digital Bus, a mobile science education program that integrates cutting edge technology with site based monitoring experiments. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provided their Bay-Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) grant to help fund the program.

Ho`okuleana is now accepting applications from teachers for participation.  For more information, contact John at the Alaka`ina Foundation, 442-7128 or via email –
