An open community meetup to hack on science projects every first Tuesday.
We have reached out for workshops and speakers from Hawaii and outside Hawaii. Participants will also be able to learn from 12 mini workshops and demonstrations, mini keynotes and participate in a Galaxy Treasure Hunt for answers posed by STEM professionals from Hawaii.
Dr Rick Bennett, President Applied Life Sciences LLC and the Kona Coast Waterkeeper, will speak on "The measurement of microbial safety of our recreation waters is a SWAG, and we are going to be OK."
Undergraduate students from MIT’s Traveling Research Environmental eXperience (TREX) will present the results of two research projects from their time on Hawaii.
We have been able to map the boundaries of the supercluster of 100,000 galaxies that we live in: a structure that we named Laniakea. It is some 500 million light years across, making it one of the largest known features in our Universe.
