Journey Through the Universe promotes science education at Hawai‘i Island school districts and inspires students to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields by developing literacy in science. Journey endeavors to foster curiosity and wonder about our Universe, and the cutting-edge research and technology that is allowing us to understand our place in the cosmos like never before. Originally developed by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE), Journey has expanded each year since its introduction in Hawaiʻi by the staff of the international Gemini Observatory, a Program of NSF’s NOIRLab. The success of Journey Through the Universe over the past 18 years is evidence of the support from our local community partners across the industries of government, business, astronomy and higher education and our foundational partnerships with the Maunakea Observatories, the Thirty Meter Telescope Project and the Hawaiʻi County Department of Education.
