AMS-02 - University of Hawaii at Manoa

In addition to our research work, the team also dedicates significant time to outreach and education. We are fascinated by astronomy and astrophysics, and we believe that these topics can inspire young students, as they inspired us. We want to help educators, in improving students learning in STEM fields. Working with schools in Hawaii, we are developing high school curricula and providing opportunities for students to engage with science through real world applications.

Current projects include incorporating engineering, math, astronomy, and arts to determine the best time to send astronauts to Mars and a practical project: constructing a particle detector from everyday objects such as webcams.
