KAUAI COMMUNITY SCIENCE CENTER PILOT PROJECT

Collaborators

Waimea Canyon Middle School, Waimea, Kauai

Sciencenter, Ithaca, New York

Funding Sources

County of Kauai, Office of Economic Development

Pilot Project

The Students Sharing Science pilot project provides the Kauai Community Science Center, KCSC, with an opportunity to pilot their student generated display/hands-on-activity concept by collaborating with the Integrated Science Class at Waimea Canyon Middle School, WCMS, and Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY.


Through this collaboration KCSC will connect students and teachers with meaningful professional collaborators that will provide the students with mentors and real-life applications of the scientific principals they are working on bringing to life for the community. 


WCMS students will bring their voice, creativity and energy to KCSC and help the organization understand student needs, interests and begin to learn how KCSC can best serve and support students on Kauai. 


WCMS Teachers will provide expertise, guidance and support to ensure that the level of involvement and support are aligned with both teacher objectives and student needs. 


The Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY will provide expertise and experience as a professional collaborator and as a nationally recognized hands-on science center. Sciencenter also has a "Future Science Leaders" program for middle school aged students that will be very relevant in the collaboration. 


Additional professional collaborators from the Kauai Community will also support building these relationships. The experience gained from this pilot program will be foundational to KCSC.
