Mahalo, and a hui hou!

As many of you already know, I (Chezlani) will soon be moving on from my position as Program Leader here at Earl’s Garage. It has been an amazing opportunity, but for personal reasons, I need to step down. I have greatly appreciated the time spent here with the incredible thinkers and creators here in the Garage!

Earl’s Garage will be taking a brief hiatus for the months of November and December, while conducting a search for the next Program Leader. Anyone who is interested in the position should inquire at future@fofhawaii.org.

The Garage will reopen in January, so please check back for updates!

Also, please note that Family Science Night will still occur as scheduled on November 16 (see above).

Mahalo to all the awesome Garage families for making this a super-special place! It’s been great getting to know all of you, and I hope to still see you around town.

Rest in Peace, Earl Bakken

This year’s Fright Shop is dedicated to Earl whose invention of the transistorized, battery operated, wearable heart pacemaker … in a garage… inspired the name Earl’s Garage. Earl understood the importance of a space where kids could not only learn, but also just “mess around” with tools, having the freedom to try new things. His legacy will live on in Earl’s Garage for many years to come, as today’s students grow into young innovators and inventors in the future.

A hui hou, Earl!

October Family Science Night

October’s Family Science Night was a blast! Retired science teacher Matt Binder joined us to share his knowledge about the life cycle, habits, and different species of mosquitoes. Families learned how best to prevent breeding areas, as well as how to catch and photograph mosquitoes in different locations to share that information through the citizen science app iNaturalist. Thanks for joining us, Matt!
