For Immediate Release

Creating student interest in science and agriculture through Kalo

A new three-credit summer course called “Cultural and Scientific Investigations (CSI): Kalo,” (AG:198) is being offered for the first time this summer by the University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service.

The course is for high school students and is a hands-on class held at Waiakea High School, UH Hilo and ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center with several excursions planned to supplement students’ learning. The course is open to students who have the ability to do college work and can have their high school counselor attest to this. Due to subsidies obtained by course organizers, the course fee is $2. Registration is at CCECS (974-7664) and at Waiakea High School through Mrs. Paula DeMorales (933-0550). The class will be offered from June 12 – June 22, Monday-Friday, 8 am – noon with a field trip to Waipio Valley on June 14-15.

The course is the product of a collaborative effort between two UH Hilo colleges - the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Management (CAFNRM), Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke’elikolani College of Hawaiian Language, and the USDA Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center.

Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, contact Carole Ishimaru at 974-7339.
