What:

Dr. Abby Frazier, EWC Fellow, will present on drought and fire as part of the STEM component of Windward Community College’s TRiO/Upward Bound Summer Program known as TUB. TUB is a college exposure program for high school students from Castle, Kailua, and Kahuku High Schools. Learn more about WCC TUB here.

This year’s Summer Program STEM theme is “Climate Adaptation in Hawaiʻi”. Dr. Frazier will be joined by Maya Walton and Katy Hintzen from the University of Hawaiʻi Sea Grant College Program, who will present on King Tides and sea level rise, and Fred Reppun from the Heʻeia National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), who will speak about watersheds and fish ponds. TUB students will be introduced to real-world environmental issues which they will research and work to “solve” over the 6-week program. Students will present their findings at a dedicated symposium.

The initial presentation is scheduled for June 9. TUB has partnered with Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center (PICASC) to facilitate the STEM program.
