The first ThinkTech forum of the year will assess the state of Hawaii’s science industry.
The “Report Card on Our Science Industry” will consist of a panel featuring Neal Atebara, Peter Crouch, Song Choi, Kim Holland, Andrew Howard, Matthew Koenig, and Cecilia Shikuma, with opening remarks by Dave Karl, Director of the Center for Microbial Oceanography Research and Education (CMORE).
The event will feature the “exciting science” that’s going on in Manoa, and how it’s reaching kids participating in the Hawaii State Science & Engineering Fair (organized by the Hawaii Academy of Science) scheduled for March.
“Join us for an important discussion on Science in Hawaii, how it’s doing and what we need to do to take it to new levels,” organizers write. “Hear from the scientists, meet the mentors and enjoy those special kids in the Science Fair.”
Hawaii Business Magazine and the Hawaii Academy of Science are the forum’s sponsors.
The event will take place on Thursday, January 22 from 11:30 to 1:30 pm at the Downtown Laniakea YWCA (1040 Richards St.). Advance registration is $30, $20 for students, with walk-ins taken first-come, first-served for $35.
