    Keaholoa

    Keaholoa refers to "the long fishing line," a metaphor for the academic tools mentor-teachers will provide STEM students who will "learn how to plumb the depths of academic inquiry."

    He lawaiʻa ke kai papaʻu, he pokole ke aho; he lawaiʻa no ke kai hohonu, he loa ke aho.

    A fisherman of the shallow sea uses a short line; a fisherman of the deep sea has a long line.
    A person whose knowledge is shallow does not have much, but he whose knowledge is great, does.
