John Southworth, CRDG specialist in distance learning–enrichment (DL–E) has teamed with former Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs at the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) Marlene Hapai to create StAmP Net.
StAmP Net gives students and teachers in high schools around the state an opportunity to use computers and telecommunications systems to learn about college opportunities available through CTAHR programs. Schools that participated in the program include Waimea and Kapa‘a High Schools on Kaua‘i; Maui, Lahainaluna, and Baldwin High Schools on Maui; Moloka‘i High School on Moloka‘i; Pāhoa, Waiākea, and Kea‘au High Schools and Kanu O Ka ‘Āina PCS on the Big Island; and La Pietra School, Maryknoll School, Hanalani School, Waialua High School, Kamehameha Schools, Mid-Pacific Institute, Olomana School, Roosevelt High School, St. Anthony’s High School, St. Andrew’s Priory School, and ELS on O‘ahu.

Hapai recently relocated to Hilo to direct the newly-founded Mauna Kea Astronomy Education Center (MKAEC) where she plans to use the DL–E model for outreach education to schools. CRDG/MKAEC partnerships are also planned in the Women in Technology project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and in a pilot project that will work with the Mauna Kea observatories to share information on astronomy and Hawaiian culture associated with Mauna Kea with up to ten schools this year.
