Our semesterly partnership with Girls on the Run Hawai'i returns! For those who haven't participated before, GOTR is an organization that leads 3rd-8th grade girls through a 10-week program through a curriculum focused on emotional and physical wellness. At the end of the program, the girls are prepared to complete a celebratory 5K!
At these 5K events, before the run begins, we provide fun science experiments and activities for the girls and their families. This year our theme is "To Space and Beyond!" and will focus on space and atmospheric sciences. We're going to need tons of volunteers, no experience in space or atmospheric science required! Just bring yourself and a positive attitude.
