Hybrid AstroDay in Hilo 2021

Weekend of Science Fun

In reponse to Covid safety, the AstroDay organizers partnered with merchants at the Prince Kuhio Plaza in Hilo to distribute hundreds of difference science activities to the public from April 30 - May 2. The aim was to offer the same learning opportunities as safely as possible by packaging "kits" of material that mall visitors could pick up from various locations around the mall. Mahalo Nui to those PKP merchants below who hosted our event!

AstroDay and International Astronomy Day

AstroDay coincides with Astronomy Day, an international grass-roots movement to share the joy of astronomy with local communities. On Astronomy Days, thousands of people throughout the world will have the opportunity to see what amateur and professional astronomers learn, explore and share about their science. AstroDay in Hilo features exhibits, demonstrations, activities, and entertainment throughout Prince Kuhio Plaza. Over 30 science, education, and community organizations will participate in the festivities to create a well-rounded and exciting day of celebrating knowledge!


AstroDay presenters include volunteers from observatories on Maunakea, Mauna Loa, Haleakala, and Oahu, as well as educators, students, community groups, and educational vendors.  Mahalo to all involved!
