The Project Imua teams are dedicated to furthering aerospace education with younger students. This page will be updated as the teams find and participate in more educational outreach events and activities.
Windward Ho'olaule'a Fall 2017
During the 17th Annual Windward Ho'olaule'a Celebration, the WinCC and HonCC teams ran the Aerospace Education tent. The teams led k-12 students through a paper rocket launch, while discussing basic aerodynamics with the students. Young students were able to test which nose cone and fin designs produced the highest and most stable flights.
The Aerospace Education tent was up and running from ten a.m. to four p.m. During the festival, roughly 400 students were led through the creation and testing of the paper rockets.
The Project Imua teams will continue to host demonstrations for students in the future, and there are other science based demonstrations happening every year. For more information about the festival, visit the Windward Ho'olaule'a website.
Monthly Rocket Launches
The WinCC team hosts model rocket launches on the third Saturday of every month, and the HonCC team hosts model rocket launches on the first Saturday of every month, each on their respective campuses. Any educators interested in bringing their students to a model rocket launch can contact Dr. Hudson for information about the WinCC launches and Helen Rapozo for information about the HonCC launches. Their contact information can be found on the Contact page.
Listen up students! There are alot of space games out there, and naturally Project Imua mentors and students have some favorites. Try them out and you might just learn something!
Game One: Moonlander
Moonlander is an arcade style game that tests your rocket landing skills. You attempt to land your rocket on the moon using the arrow keys to maneuver and slow down your rocket in time.
Game Two: Kerbal Space Program
Kerbal Space Program does cost $39.99. On the other hand, this game will give you a surprisingly realistic lesson on running an actual space program.
The Bishop Museum offers a number of STEM programs, demonstrations and activities. They offer Planetarium shows for all ages, Science on a Sphere Programs for Pre-k through 8th grade, and a variety of exhibits. Visit the Bishop Museum website for more information.
NASA Education for Students: Current Opportunities
The NASA website details current opportunites for students of all ages, including fellowships and internships, lectures and webcasts, competitions, workshops, contests, and activites specific to K-8 students. Visit the NASA website for more information.
