Unfortunately, thousands of students across Hawaii will be out of school for the next several months due to the coronavirus crisis. With parents taking on a larger teaching role to make sure their kids continue to learn and grow while sequestered at home, the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project has awarded a $50,000 grant to the Hilo-based Hawaii Science and Technology Museum to fund its innovative online STEM learning program. "We're committed to serving our community during this time of crisis, and we have an opportunity to help Hawaii Island keiki grow their STEM skills at a time when students will most likely miss lessons for months," said TMT's Hawaii Community Affairs Manager Sandra Dawson.

Hawaii Science and Technology Museum's Online STEM Learning Program project-based learning activities and innovative science lessons have been designed to help parents, teachers and students so the keiki don't miss out on critical development. The program will serve 500 students in grades K-8 in the Department of Education's Hilo-Waiakea Complex Area in May, June and July.
