One objective of the Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium in accordance with NASA's educational objectives is to build and maintain an educational pipeline that includes provisions for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium has developed the HiSTEM program with strong educational pipelines to propel the technical learning experiences from elementary school to Master's level postgraduate degrees. The HiSTEM pipeline consists of three branches in the areas of Space Science, Engineering, and Remote Sensing that offer activities from K-12 to undergraduate to graduate level. We recognize the need to engage student interest in STEM disciplies at a young age and the HiSTEM pipeline is designed to provide hands-on interactive and engaging programs at every level of education.
