Pacific Exploration in STEM: June 22–28, 2023


Experience the multiculturalism of Hawaii along with unique STEM activities at the newly opened STEM Center for Excellence at Camp Paumalu on Oahu’s North Shore.


About the Trip

Learn all about the ocean, outer space, and the earth at this Destination. Explore Polynesia and other cultures as we visit historical locations on the island of Oahu. Stay at our new Camp Paumalu STEM Center for Excellence located on the North Shore of Oahu.

The spirit of aloha—being in the presence of and sharing the essence of life—teaches us lessons of peace, kindness, compassion, and responsibility to future generations. These lessons are expressed through chants, music, hula, arts and cultural practices, and through the warm, genuine greetings that are a hallmark of Hawaiian hospitality. We tie these lessons in some of the STEM activities that we will undertake to study earth, space, and ocean science.
