Mahalo to You! (Stem Expo Kōkua & Volunteers)

Mahalo for making the 9th Annual STEM Expo a success! We could not have done it without you!
We welcomed 25 vendors and had 97 raffle entires, and raffled off 23 items. One of the vendors who is a large technology and engineering consulting company gave us a lasting impression:
“Last year, we ended up hiring 2 students we met at the KCC STEM Expo, and another intern, so it was worth it for us. If you can tell your students anything, tell them to get involved in clubs and projects and stand out, because we are looking for local talent from Hawaii.”
We look forward to seeing you again at the next Expo!


Due to unfortunate weather conditions, the 9th Annual STEM Expo Opportunity Fair will be postponed until next Thursday, October 4 from 9:30am – 12:30pm. We are grateful you are able to join us next week and excited to see you all!

The career expert website recently published a study ranking community colleges nationwide on highest earning graduates.

Kapiolani Community College ranked number one in Hawaii reporting graduates earn $40,400 about 10 years after entry.” (KHON2 Webstaff, 08/02/18)
