Windward Sustainability Challenge Recap

June 03, 2019

Last month, ‘ĀINA Program Coordinators Stephanie Loui and Joe Wat had the opportunity to join the Windward Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) celebration as the industry partners and judges of the Natural Resource Challenge. High school students enrolled in Natural Resource classes at Olomana, Kailua High, Kalāheo High, Castle High and Kahuku High each brought samples of endemic or indigenous plants that they propagated in their ahupuaʻa. Students demonstrated how to propagate the plants, created an argument for why they should be outplanted, and shared moʻolelo and other information about the plants. Presented by the Windward Academy for CTE, the PBA is a great opportunity for students to embark on independent projects connected to career pathways.
