Pāʻina with NASA

NASA and HESTEM Program Pathway

On Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 KCC STEM Center will be hosting our very first Pāʻina of the Spring 2017 semester. Presentations by Dilmurat M. Azimov, PhD, DSc Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UH Mānoa and KCCʻs very own Aaron Hanai PhD, Instructor of Math and Sciences.

Learn about HESTEM, the $500,000 NASA funded grant that aims to support the growth of STEM disciplines in statistically underrepresented communities.

“NASAʻs Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) program provides support for colleges and universities to build programs that connect students from underrepresented and underserved communities with NASA, giving them the strong foundation they need to pursue and excel in STEM fields,” said Donald James, associate administrator for NASAʻs Office of Education.
