Tidepooling with Na Pua No'eau
The Center for Gifted and Talented Native Hawaiian Children
On November 15, 1997 a workshop was held at
Onekahakaha Beach Park near Hilo for 12 middle-school students
from various schools around Hawai'i. Dr. Brian Tissot, an
Associate Professor of Marine Biology at the University of
Hawai'i at Hilo, led the field trip. Tidepools were explored and
measurements were made of ocean salinity as it varied offshore.
Discussion of Hawaiian uses of marine organisms and the strong
ocean stewardship of native Hawaiians was described. For more
information on what was taught check the curriculum
guide. Here are a few pictures from the field trip. For more
