Under new direction in Hilo, Hawaiʻi, TMT staff are building the relationships and trust necessary for supporting Hawaiʻi’s various communities through grassroots communications and community-driven educational programs. Through partnerships and collaborations with Hawaiʻi community leaders, schools, and non-profit organizations, we are focused on meeting our communities’ needs with innovative programming in education, infrastructure and mālama ʻāina (honoring the land).
TMT staff are committed to listening to and learning from communities in Hawai‘i, particularly Native Hawaiian communities. We recognize that our focus must be on building long-term partnerships based on respect and trust.
Inspiring the next generation of explorers, TMT staff participate in a variety of educational programs across Hawai‘i, on the United States Continent and in our parter countries that are designed to engage students in interactive science and engineering lessons, exciting discoveries about the universe, and understanding the value in various ways of knowing ʻAʻohe pau ka ʻike i ka hālau hoʻokahi (All knowledge is not taught in the same school).
We are committed to developing programs that are built on the principles of true partnership with Native Hawaiian and local communities.
