On Thursday April 23rd 2020, our staff hosted a free webinar for 8-12th grade science teachers to provide an overview of program resources. Below is the 22 min recording of this webinar which gives an overview of the program. Please take a moment to complete our teacher survey after watching the webinar to help us improve the program.

The Huliau Climate Literacy Project was launched in fall 2017, and has since served over 1,200 students at five schools on Maui. The mission of the project is to work with science teachers in grades 8-12 to integrate hands-on climate literacy activities into their curriculum in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards. This includes classroom visits, hands-on activities, and an online curriculum library for teachers. The goal of the program is to build climate literacy in our community by supporting teachers in teaching about climate change, and to encourage an inclusive conversation about climate change solutions.
In 2020, Maui Huliau Foundation is launching an online Google Classroom resource center for the program, teacher workshops, and a field trip experience for students. We also provide some in-class support, and help facilitate student-led projects to investigate local solutions to climate change.
