Maunakea Scholars Share Their Telescope Experience

The next scheduled program in the Maunakea Speaker Series will be held Thursday, June 15 from 7pm to 8pm at ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center’s Planetarium.

The Maunakea Scholars program, led by Canada-France-Hawai‘i Telescope (CFHT), is a partnership among the Maunakea Observatories, Hawai‘i State Department of Education, and University of Hawaiʻi. This innovative program is designed to bring aspiring young astronomers into the observatory community by awarding observing time on world-class telescopes to Hawaiʻi high school students so they can pursue research of their own design and inspiration.

The evening presentation will include two Maunakea Scholars from Honokaʻa High School, Hokulani Sanchez and Keilani Steele. These accomplished students used their telescope time on CFHT to observe dark nebulae and study the connection to star formations in our galaxy. CFHT Director Doug Simons and Outreach Manager Mary Beth Laychak will round out the presentation with details about the past, present and future of this unique education program.

The Maunakea Speaker Series is free and open to the public.
