2013 Akamai Observatory Career Exploration Looking for West Hawaii High School Students
TMT, in partnership with Akamai Workforce Initiative (AWI) and Hawaii Community College, encourages high school students to sign up for this summer's Akamai Observatory Career Exploration session, offered June 10th through June 21st at Kealakehe High School.
Developed to inspire students to explore the range of observatory and other technical careers available in Hawaii, this introductory course gives high school students an opportunity to meet with scientists, engineers, and staff from leading observatories and the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority facility.
Students will improve scientific and technical problem-solving skills and leave with knowledge that could direct them to an observatory career path!
Approved by the DOE, each 60-hour course is equivalent to a 1/2 high school elective credit. Class sizes are limited, so early registration is encouraged.
To register or for more information, call Tiana at Office of Continuing Education & Training (OCET) 934-2696 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
