February 4, 2020 - Thank you for your interest in providing feedback on the Ala Wai Flood Control Plan. This project affects the whole community, and your input is very important to us as we move forward.
February 3, 2020 - Since 2017, Oceanit has trained 555 teachers from almost 250 schools using the Altino coding system, creating a STEM education snowball effect to reach as many of Hawaii's students as possible and setup a future of computer science understanding.
We continue this trend into 2020 by inviting more K-12 educational professionals to join us for a 3-day, DOE-accredited Altino course, generously funded by the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation, Kamehameha Schools, and Toyota Hawaii.
December 27, 2019 - As artificial intelligence (AI) technology begins to come into maturity, Hawaii has a unique opportunity to hop on the wave of innovation and carve a path toward economic sustainability. Oceanit is actively working to make this a reality by training teachers to code and increasing the chances that students will be exposed to creative problem solving methods.
November 14, 2019 - Like other industry experts, Oceanit knows that sustainable and renewable energy must be the focus of the future. Solar, hydroelectric, wind, and more are the direction that infrastructure must go; yet the process to get to that point is slow-- not least of all because of cost. Newer power plants are a large investment and the kilowatt/hour cost may cost upwards of 20% more than the current energy production standard.
October 17, 2019 - Oceanit has been working to organize and run community outreach meetings to solicit local engagement on the proposed Ala Wai Canal flood management plans. Oceanit's Innovation Consulting team was contracted by the “Permitted Interaction Group,” sanctioned under the City Council and led by Council Members Carol Fukunaga, Ann Kobayashi and Tommy Waters. The primary purpose was to conduct outreach and ideate alternatives to the initial U.S. Army Corps of Engineers watershed plans, which have been met with resistance from local stakeholders who felt left out of the planning process.
September 19, 2019 - It's not all about training coders. Altino is about inspiring the next generation of innovators, problem solvers, and technologists, and about creating a technology workforce in Hawai'i.
