Hawai‘i Community College (Hawai‘i CC) hosted a brand-new Summer STEM Camp June 15-26 in an effort to interest middle school students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) with the ultimate goal of increasing the number of college graduates in Hawai‘i with expertise in STEM fields. Students engaged in hands-on experiences at the college campus and in the community as they learned about biology and astronomy.
Thanks to an anonymous donor, West Hawai‘i Island students pursuing marine sciences at the new Hawai'i Community College – Pālamanui campus now have more scholarship support. A $50,000 gift established the West Hawai‘i Marine Science Endowed Scholarship.
