Abstract: In 1991 and 1992 the School of Ocean and Earth Science and
Technology of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa offered a summer science
and engineering enrichment program to a total of 75 Hawai'i students entering
10th through 12th grades. The program was funded by the National Science
Foundation's Young Scholars Program. Students participating in the program
studied chemical, biological, physical, and geological aspects of the Ala Wai
Canal, a small artificial estuary in Waikiki, Hawai'i. The program provided the
students with an opportunity to participate in original research through multidisciplinary
(botany, civil engineering, computer sciences, geology and geophysics,
microbiology, oceanography) scientific and engineering projects. Results
of the students' work have contributed to an increased understanding of
the physical condition of the canal, the level of pollution involved, and the
potential for cleanup.
