Kamehameha Schools Hawai‘i is excited to launch Hālau Kupukupu Summer Innovations Academy. Kupukupu means “to sprout or grow” as leaves,
blossoms, knowledge, and ideas. With ‘āina as the center of dynamic, vital learning experiences blending rigorous and authentic culture-based Science,
Technology, Engineering, the Arts, Math (STEAM), literacy pieces, and creative exploration, our keiki and ‘ōpio will grow their skills as innovators and stewards
of today and tomorrow.
Hālau Kupukupu Summer Innovations Academy is a four-week learning adventure where students are engaged in fun, hands-on experiences in and out of
the classroom. As action researchers, students take field trips, learn from experts in our community, and explore the rich outdoor learning environment
of Moku o Keawe. The program offers incredible educational opportunities that inspire passion for learning and enable young learners to be successful
and prepared for the next school year.
Hālau Kupukupu Summer Innovations Academy is open to students entering grades K–12 on Hawai‘i island, including current Kamehameha
Schools students, and students attending the State of Hawai‘i DOE, public charter schools and other private institutions.
The 2017 Hālau Kupukupu Summer Innovations Academy runs from June 15th to July 13th. The schedule of courses includes morning only, or full day learning opportunities for keiki and ‘öpio.
Applications are available from January 3 to February 15. Visit ksbe.edu/admissions to download a copy and see available course offerings.
