A Science Center Connecting Science & Community
One of the most crucial ways we can connect to science is by forming a strong connection to our environment!
CLIMATE CONNECT aims to help the Kaua'i community understand how climate affects our lives and inspire them to take action. Our actions every day can make a difference.
CONNECT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
The CLIMATE CONNECT Logo!
This logo represents commitment from the people of Kauai to care for our planet.
Kauai is surrounded by precious resources, teachers and students: They work with KCSC as climate scientists to connect how everyday activities have an impact the Earth’s climate.
Trees: Important resources for providing oxygen and makes our air quality better
The sun: The most important resource for generating weather patterns, creating energy for plants, food and all living things. Without the sun, Earth would be just a lifeless rock.
An energy efficient home: These homes can provide an opportunity to save money and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
Fish: A natural resources for food and is a vital part of the ocean’s ecosystem. THE
Ocean: As an Island, we are surrounded by the ocean. It basically effects our way of life. It’s a source of food, entertainment, it influences weather patterns, and can be a source of energy.
Kalo (Taro): I included Kalo or Taro to represent Hawaiian Culture because it is an important staple food for the Hawaiian people. Today all cultures enjoy taro in many different ways.
A solar panel: On Kauai we see the sun almost everyday of the year. Solar power is a great way to create energy with emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
The Hokule'a: The Hokule’a completed a worldwide voyage a year ago called Malama Honua, which means “to care for our Earth”. the purpose of the voyage was to practice the tradition to venture beyond the horizontal connect with others on how to best preserve environmental resources for the future.
Wind: Another important resource and alternative for producing energy.
An energy efficient car: This mode of transportation doesn’t let out as much emissions as a regular car.
Recycle bin: Reduces the amounts of trash that end up in the landfill. Also reduces the amount of marine debris.
Bicycle: Another mode of green transportation
Mount Waiale'ale: We are fortunate to have the wettest spot on Earth on our island. Mount Waiale’ale produces an abundant amount of fresh water for the residents of Kauai.
Fun fact: Notice the pineapple on the computers that replaces an apple to represent a fruit from Hawaii.
