The Family Education Training Center of Hawaii (FETCH), with the University of Hawaii, is offering another Sustainable Science Teen Internship Program next spring! (I hear that about half of their current enrollment are homeschool kids and that they've enjoyed the program so far this fall!)
It is a hands-on 14-week program that is open high school students, wherein participants "plan, build, care for, harvest, and market their own sustainable, organic farm" while learning "concepts in botany, biology, soil science, and chemistry", plus gaining experience in cooking a dish from the garden each week! There are a number of other skills also listed on the website that students will learn and utilize during the program that could be useful for future college classes and work or life in general. See below for a brochure you can download with more information and/or feel free to explore the links below to read more about the program.
Tuition is $75/semester with dinner included (prepared by the students).
They will have an Open House on January 20th, 2016 @ 2:30pm at the UHM Hale Tuahine Farm at Magood Research Station, 2727 Woodlawn Drive. RSVP is needed and the open house is free of charge.
Call 808-956-2248 or email them with questions or to RSVP.
NOTE: Since it is my goal to help make information and resources more accessible to local homeschool families, I've decided to pass on what was provided to me regarding this program.. Be advised, however, that I have NOT been involved in it personally.. This is NOT a review, recommendation, or endorsement of any kind. I am not associated or affiliated with the FETCH program or UH. Please do your own research and make an informed decision before getting involved in this, or any other program shown on my website, blog, or elsewhere.
I'm a homeschooling mom of two, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
