Keaukaha Students Learn About the Transit of Venus Courtesy of NASA

NASA’s Sun-Earth Day traveled to a native Hawaiian elementary school in Hilo (Keaukaha Elementary School) to record a classroom activity about the Transit of Venus.

The students built small telescopes and practiced following a model of Venus across a projected image of our Sun. Along the way, they learned about the 1874 Transit event which ties in closely with Hawaiian history.

  1. There are no local teacher supply stores on the big island. Aunty Koa does not work for NASA. A lame attempt at public affairs by Gemini telescope and NASA. Did you see the strange lights above Hilo Saturday night? I have video.

Feel like saying something about this?
