"University of Hawaii at Manoa's School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) is hosting their 2017 SOEST Open House on Friday, October 20, 8:30am– 2pm, and Saturday, October 21, 10am – 2pm! I have heard only good things about this event from homeschool families that have previously attended. It's FREE to attend and open to the public! This event is only offered every two years!
This event offers an opportunity to experience "a diverse array of entertaining and educational hands-on activities and demonstrations", highlighting the research the school conducts. Information is apparently presented via videos, posters, and interactive demonstrations. "Visit state-of-the-art laboratories and hear about cutting-edge research from the scientists who are making the new discoveries!"
Some of the topics include:
"SOEST is home to the academic departments of Oceanography, Geology and Geophysics, Meteorology, and Ocean and Resources Engineering, as well as eight research institutes, centers, laboratories, and programs."
Visit their website for details (including a parking map) or to view their exhibit program, which will allow you to view specific titles and summaries of exhibits you can expect to find at the event.
If you plan to attend with a homeschool group, please note that they ask that you make a reservation for groups of 10 or more.
For more information, please call 808-956-3151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'm a homeschooling mom of three, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
