CTAHR is supporting Washington Middle School in its project, “STEAM Entrepreneurship and Research Network,” where students and teachers engage in interdisciplinary learning activities to re-connect students to science and connections to community in their world through immersion in culture, sustainable agriculture, community service and personal growth. This project received a $150,000 grant.
Several University of Hawai?i projects were each awarded $100,000–$450,000 as part of Gov. David Ige’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) fund, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The projects encompass STEM education, project-based learning opportunities and leadership development programs, and are scheduled to run through June 30, 2022.
“These projects demonstrate our faculty’s innovative spirit and commitment to improve learning across our islands,” UH President David Lassner said. “Our post-pandemic priorities recommitted us to help teachers and ensure that students at all levels can advance along their educational pathways to achieve success in their careers and communities. These projects help show the way forward in education, health and more.”
