Christian Wong, Hawaii Science and Technology Museum
Join Hawaiʻi Science and Technology Museum Executive Director Christian Wong for his talk about community robotics and mentoring the next generation of science and engineering leaders. In partnership with NOAA's Mokupāpapa Discovery Center in Hilo, Christian and HSTM developed the Kenyan K. Beals Community Robotics Center in support of student engineering and robotics projects and are currently preparing to launch a small satellite they helped develop to take measurements of the thermosphere. Christian will also talk about how the museum is adjusting to providing STEM education during the pandemic, and the role innovation plays in education and developing a sustainable economy for Hawaiʻi Island.
