Honolulu HI, 7 June 2022 | The University of Hawai’i Manoa’s “Project Hōkūlani” was featured on Hawaii News Now last week, featuring Oceanit’s collaboration to bring Computer Science and Design Thinking to more students across the state.
The primary goal of Project Hōkūlani is to support Native Hawaiian high school students and encourage them to enter into post-secondary science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The project supports this objective through culturally responsive, strength- and work-based enrichment programs. Project Hōkūlani is a partnership between UH Manoa and Oceanit, supported by the U.S. Department of Education, Native Hawaiian Education Program Grant.
