Hawaii’s largest and most exciting family-friendly STEM event returns in an exciting interactive and virtual format on Saturday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is the third year that the Boy Scouts of America, Aloha Council will produce the event in partnership with event sponsors and community friends as a service to the community, honoring the legacy of Eagle Scout and Astronaut Ellison Onizuka. Prior to COVID-19, more than 8,000 people from across the state attended the in person Onizuka Day.
For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts held an annual “Scout Makahiki,” which was reinvented in 2017 as the Ellison Onizuka Day of Exploration. Approximately 40% of Scouting’s merit badges are STEM-focused, making this special event a natural fit for the Scouting community. Generous sponsorship support has been provided by Hawaiian Electric Company.
