Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: Depending on what island [the local kids] are from, they may or may not know some of these locations. Depending on whether they are outdoors types, they may or may not know. The mainland kids sometimes know it better because they like to go hiking and they've been to these places... Hawaiian geology is not a requirement for our major, so I often have to do some instructing on those aspects.
