Planet Kaua‘i opens Kids College summer programs

Kids College Planet Kaua‘i announced it will host science and technology programs for 11, 12 and 13 year-old students, according to a press release.

“We’ll use a geiger counter to check if Kaua‘i has any radiation effects from Japan’s tsunami-damaged reactors,” says coordinator Cheryl Shintani in a press release. “We’ll test our environment with electro-magnetic field devices, ultra-violet meters, global positioning systems, psychrometers and anemometers.”

Instructor Lisa Nishizuka and her students will test the water and soil, and students will plant lettuce seeds, crack open geodes, study insects and create 3-D topography, according to the release.

The program runs June 6 to 9, from 8 a.m. to noon at Kaua‘i Community College. Cost is $100. Scholarships are available for students attending Title I schools on Kaua‘i.
