Iolani School

The portal for the Iolani School's Biology Class was created in collaboration with the Center for Conservation Research and Training (CCRT), University of Hawaii at Manoa, as a focus for environmental cyberinfrastructure developed in Hawaii through funding provided in FY 2010-2011 by The National Science Foundation’s EPSCoR Program (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research). The focus of this project is to develop the K - 12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) capacity required of the next generation of Hawaii's engineers and scientists to monitor, understand, mitigate, and adapt the predicted Pacific-wide climate change impacts. This collaboration between Iolani School and the University of Hawaii at Manoa will develop innovative K-12 curricula that will involve students in "hands-on" projects in aquatic and environmental cyberinfrastructure focused in the "mountain-to-sea" environments of the Ala Wai Watershed in Honolulu. Curricula will provide the future technical and social capacity needed for applying information and technology to decision-making, resource management, education, and workforce development so as to improve community resiliency to climate change impacts.
