Windward Ho'olaule'a Fall 2018

During the 18th Annual Windward Ho'olaule'a Celebration, the Windward CC and Honolulu CC teams ran the Aerospace Education tent. The teams led K–12 students through a paper rocket launch, while discussing basic aerodynamics with the students. Young students were able to test which nose cone and fin designs produced the highest and most stable flights.

The Aerospace Education tent was up and running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. During the festival, roughly 400 students were led through the creation and testing of the paper rockets.

The Project Imua teams will continue to host demonstrations for students in the future, and there are other science based demonstrations happening every year.

Monthly Rocket Launches

The Windward CC team hosts model rocket launches on the third Saturday of every month, and the Honolulu CC team hosts model rocket launches on the first Saturday of every month, each on their respective campuses. Any educators interested in bringing their students to a model rocket launch can contact Dr. Hudson for information about the Windward CC launches and Helen Rapozo for information about the Honolulu CC launches.
