Ka Pilina Noʻeau II
2020 – 2023
Native Hawaiian Education Program
Ka Pilina Noʻeau II is a 3-year project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Native Hawaiian Education Program grant (Award #S362A20037). The project is one of the projects at the Center on Disability Studies, College of Eduation, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. We partner with ALU LIKE, Inc., the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaiʻi, the Mathematics Department at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, and public schools throughout Oʻahu. The overarching goal of the project is to increase STEM engagement and improve math and science knowledge and competencies of all students, especially those who are Native Hawaiian in grades K to 5, to ultimately contribute to a diverse, STEM capable workforce for the future of our society. The project will provide a math and science camp to K-5th grade students of participating schools during school breaks. In addition, during the school year, the project will train K-5 teachers who are interested in learning the Ka Pilina Math and Science Learning (MSL) Model and implementing the MSL curriculum in their classroom instruction through our Professional Development course. The project will also train high school students who are passionate about STEM and teaching STEM to elementary age students as Junior Mentor interns. The project will also provide a Parent Workshop Series to teach parents of participating students how to use the MSL model at home with their families.
