CRDG Summer Programs

The Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG) Summer Programs at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa continues its commitment of over forty years of summer education, exploration, and adventure. Students entering grades 1–12 discover what it takes to be scientists conducting research in the laboratory and field; engineers designing and building solutions to real world problems; programmers learning the language of computers; members of a virtual community collaborating to solve global issues; conservationists working to protect the natural resources of the ‘āina; artists, writers, and designers exploring their creativity; or actors producing and starring in an original stage production.

Inquiry-based instruction and hands-on learning in the classroom, laboratory, field, and theater are the cornerstones for all of our courses. Classes are led by a highly qualified staff of teachers and teacher assistants to ensure a safe learning environment where students are able to immerse themselves in their work and come to their own “A-HA!” moments.


  • All classes meet at the University Laboratory School.
  • No classes will be held on June 11 (Kamehameha Day observed), and July 4 (Independence Day).
  • Supervised areas will be available from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm to ensure safe learning and play.
  • All students must provide their own snacks and lunch.  No food service is offered.
