About Journey Through the Universe
Journey Through the Universe endeavors to foster curiosity and wonder about our Universe, and the cutting-edge research and technology that is allowing humanity to understand our place in the cosmos right in our own community. From February 5th – 9th, 2024, ‘Journey Week’ will include in-person classroom presentations, career panels, and public evening events taking place in Hilo, Hawaiʻi. The astronomy community, led by Gemini Observatory/NOIRLab in partnership with the Department of Education Hilo-Waiākea Complex Area, inspires students to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields through exposure to a variety of careers and engaging hands-on activities and phenomena. Students experience the unique science happening at the Maunakea Observatories and beyond through these yearly classroom visits by astronomers, engineers and other STEM professionals.
