Kumu Pohaku of King Kaumuali'i Elementary School
We interviewed Kumu Pohaku and learned about Hawaiian stories and their beliefs. He also taught us the hula motions for the sun, moon, heavens and the stars.
Kumu Badua of King Kaumuali'i Elementary School
We also interviewed Kumu Badua and she lent us two books and showed us how to do the motions.
Dr. Patrick Aiu, Hokulea crew member
After talking to Dr. Aiu we could easily type down things about the Hokulea and what life was like.
John Kruse, Hokulea crew member
We met with John Kruse at Kapaa Middle School. We learned a whole lot about what his expiriences were while sailing on the Hokulea.
Lei Won, Hokulea crew member
We also interviewed Lei. She was training to sail on a new voyage. It was interesting to learn about what you must learn and know to be able to sail.
Dr. Marshall Mock
The team talked to Dr. Mock at Barking Sands. He was able to answer most of our questions about spacecraft.
We visited Barking Sands and Mrs. Tanioka was a great help to us. We learned all about the stars and where they are. She taught us how to locate the most important or brightest stars.
Art Kimura, a space resource teacher helped us by answering our questions and helping us make very complicated decisions.
She helped us by finding lots of information on Jupiter.
Rene helped us by finding information on Mars and aswering our team's questions as we worked on the site.
Chris Peterson of the Planetary Data Center
Chris answered many of our questions on e-mail and got us thinking more deeply about space travel and settlement. He also loaned us a spectrometer so that we could see how they work.
Charlene Higa, Moanalua High School Chemistry Teacher
Mrs. Higa spent an entire afternoon demonstrating spectrometry for us. She let us see the spectra in flame tests and in spectrum tubes. It was fun!
Hugh Kishi and Keyle Nasu
These two were a terrific help to us. After talking to them we were able to put down a lot of information about the spacecraft engines which we were not able to find in the beginning. They also helped critique the site
Kathy Yamashiroya, Larry Hara, Karen Eseri and June Hidano
They helped us by critiquing our site and without them we wouldn't have been able to change and revise our site.
Fay, Jenna's mom
For being willing to send Jenna from Kaua'i to Oahu to meet with her teammates on the other island!
Special thanks to Susan Kientz of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
who inspired the team to try to write a space story like her 'Little Rock on Mars' and who assisted the team with their questions about space travel, on email!
Our ThinkQuest team would like to extend to you our warmest aloha and mahalo.
