Hawaii: Student project-based learning on commercial farms

Local students from public/private high schools across the island of Oahu were pre-selected to participate in paid internships. Internships ranged from 1-2 semesters and were completed on the farm(s) under the supervision of the site mentor. Students supported farm staff while developing basic skills and acclimating themselves to their new work environment.

After orientation, students transitioned to their respective projects (i.e., aquaponics). The goal of this project-based learning was to expose students to local food systems while promoting problem-solving and critical thinking. Other topics include, but are not limited to, energy, conservation, cultural practices, food safety, farm management, and marketing/distribution.
