The Chamber assisted with Kaneohe Elementary's STEM Kick-Off on September 21, during which educators heard from engineer guest speakers, participated in student-friendly hands-on activities and received engineering career awareness lesson plans. The resources and activities shared will be brought into the classroom to support our next generation of future aspiring young engineers.
The Chamber thanks Engineering Sector Partners MKE Associates LLC, ASCE, Austin Tsutsumi & Associates, Design Thinking Hawaii and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for their time and energy in supporting this event!
This event and participating employers are part of the Engineering Sector Partnership’s career awareness initiative, supporting K-12 students learning about a career in engineering. The Engineering Sector Partnership convenes industry leaders around a set of shared priorities, resulting in collective action that addresses workforce opportunities. These industry-driven employer collaboratives play a significant role in ensuring students in Hawaii are on clear pathways to high skill, high wage, in-demand careers and that Hawaii businesses have a highly skilled, local talent pipeline. The Chamber also convenes additional Sector Partnerships in Healthcare and IT.
