Coordinator's Welcome

Aloha and welcome to Kilohana: The Science Center. We offer free, walk-in tutoring in biology, chemistry, astronomy, and physics courses at UH Hilo. The Center is located in the Mookini Library, on the first floor.

Science peer staff are UH Hilo students who possess excellent knowledge in different science subjects, good inter-personal skills, and who can articulate science concepts to student visitors.

In addition to a supportive study environment, we also have a variety of resources and materials available for your use! There computeres available with software such as ChemLab, molecule model kits, and access to one of the Mookini Library's pay printer stations.

We hope that you will make Kilohana: The Science Center your one-stop shop to excel in all of your science classes!
