Learn all about Ocean, Space and Environmental Science on 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 chant, 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 be doing in studying Earth, Space and Ocean Science.
