Engineering HI logo

In spring of 2021, we launched EngineeringHI, an academic mentorship program connecting our engineering undergraduate mentors with students at James B. Castle High School in Kaneohe to provide STEM support and 1:1 peer coaching. We hope to expand this pilot program, made possible by a generous grant from the Harold KL Castle Foundation, to make it a permanent fixture in our offerings and expand its reach to more students.

Are you a student or educator at Castle High school interested in learning more or connecting with a mentor?
