Coast Guard to hold educational exposition for Hawaiian students

HONOLULU — Several Oahu-based U.S. Coast Guard units are scheduled to take part in an educational exposition for local high school students at Coast Guard Integrated Support Command ISC Honolulu Friday at 9 a.m.

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics S.T.E.M. Exposition is a collaborative initiative to promote core technological fields and develop future innovators.

More than 120 students from Governor Wallace Rider Farrington High School and Pearl City High School will have an opportunity to visit Coast Guard boats and helicopters and interact with Coast Guardsmen from various shore and afloat units.

“We’ve done separate site visits with students, but this is the first time this many Coast Guard units have come together for an educational event,” said Lt. Cmdr. Scott Woolsey, the S.T.E.M. coordinator for the 14th Coast Guard District.

An HH-65 rescue helicopter crew from Air Station Barbers Point is scheduled to conduct a demonstration in Honolulu Harbor following the exposition.
