CIMES visit to Iolani School

Members of UH’s Center for Island, Maritime and Extreme Environment Security (CIMES) and I were at ʻIolani School this morning, where we had the privilege of meeting with Department of Homeland Security Deputy Undersecretary of Science and Technology Daniel Gerstein.

The undersecretary observed a field demonstration project of some of CIMES’ technologies that are being used in the community. We also had an excellent discussion.

This is an example of the kinds of roles UH research plays in our communities. Not only is this nationally important, but we are engaging students in STEM education and the community, in risk awareness and public safety. This is a perfect example of research investment dollars going back to and benefiting the community.
