Coordinator's Welcome

Aloha and welcome to Kilohana: The Science Center. Free walk-in consultation sessions are offered in Biology, Chemistry, Marine Science, Physics, and Astronomy. We are committed to helping you gain the skills and confidence needed to become successful and independent learners. The Center is located in the Sciences and Technology Building (STB) room 117.

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 offering a supportive study environment, we also have a variety of resources and materials available for your use. There are eight PCs available for visitors to use as well as 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!
