Maui Watershed Citizen Science FREE Event

17 May

We welcome the Maui STEM Education Community to join us Tuesday May 23rd, 5:30 – 7:00 PM at the Historic Iao Theater to hear students present about their experience with this program this year.

Teachers and students were citizen scientists, using mobile labs of tablets to gather biodiversity and other data in our watersheds.  To tell their “Stories of the Watershed”, students created ArcGIS StoryMaps and other arts and cultural integration projects.  Come see and hear from the students next week!


Funding was provided by the NOAA B-WET Grant.  Mahalo to all of our partners, participating teachers, and fabulous students!
