OHA Grant: Developing High Tech Youth in Hawaiʻi

KAUA‘I — Technology is opening up a whole new world for the haumana at Kawaikini Public Charter School in Līhuʻe, Kauaʻi. Thanks to a partnership between the school, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and High Tech Youth, a digital media studio based in Aotearoa, the haumana have an on-campus, after school tech program that gives them access to high tech equipment and a mentor. Students in grades six through 12 are developing their skills in coding, robotics, video production, photography, composing original music and so much more.

The OHA grant funds that support Studio K at Līhuʻe and Studio Shaka in Hilo will support the opening of two new studios on Kauaʻi at Kapaʻa High School and Waimea High School. For haumana, the OHA grant means better access to learn tech skills and increased opportunities to be creative, be critical thinkers, and be leaders. Most importantly the OHA grant provides more opportunities for haumana to mohala (blossom).
