Honua Hangouts

Hawaii's STEM Mentor/Networking Directory


Honua Hangouts provides an opportunity for YOU to network with someone in STEM. In addition to student participation, we invite everyone in the community (aunties and uncles to teachers and firefighters) to use Honua Hangouts. We hope that Honua Hangouts opens up opportunities for collaboration, community, and career advancement for everyone and that this resource will Help Others Navigate, Understand, and Achieve.
