[Students in Grades K - 12]
This theme-oriented program provides educational enrichment opportunities for children of Hawaiian ancestry in kindergarten through grade twelve. On designated Saturdays Hawaiian students are able to enhance their skills and talents in a challenging learning environment and learn about disciplines or concepts such as chemistry, celestial navigation, anthropology, and ethnobotany. In 1998-1999 Super Enrichment Saturdays sessions will be held on the campuses of the University of Hawai'i at Hilo, Maui Community College, Kaua'i Community College, University of Hawai'i at Mänoa, & on the Islands of Moloka'i & Läna'i.
The students are taught by university faculty, school teachers, and masters from the community. For many of the students this is their first experience on a higher education campus. Participation is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Hilo campus uses this activity to do a performance-based assessment of participants. Those students that excel during this activity are invited to participate in the Summer Youth Program (Ho'omälamalama).
