This iBook was created by students at Pu’uhonua Care Facilities of Maui, Inc (Clearview School), as a part of the B-WET Hawaii grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA B-WET funding brings thousands of K-12 teachers and students around the country outside for hands-on environmental education opportunities. The Hawaii Opportunities for Partnerships in Environmental Studies (Project-HOPES) would like to thank our project partners, including: Kula Elementary School, Upcountry Academy, East Maui Watershed Partnership, Maui Invasive Species Committee, and the Hawaii Nature Conservancy.
The Project HOPES curriculum and evaluation tools are include in this iBook. In addition, the iBook includes Clearview/Upcountry Academy middle and high school students’ rewrite of the 7 Ocean Literacy Essential Principles designed to be shared with the younger students at Kula Elementary School. The original 7 Essential Principles was developed by many scientists and educators from the ocean sciences education community.
