    Stories from Hōkūleʻa’s Worldwide Voyage: Technology Leg by Leg

    Stories from Hōkūleʻa’s Worldwide Voyage: Technology Leg by Leg

    Through the internet and modern-day technology, the world was able to track and engage with Hōkūle‘a, a traditional Hawaiian voyaging canoe, that used no modern technology to sail around the world. Hōkūle‘a traveled 42,000 nautical miles in three years and visited 150 ports in over 20 countries and kept in contact with the world the whole time. The Mālama Honua online map showed the canoe’s location in real time. Video chat from the canoe to classrooms allowed children to hear from the crew directly about details of the voyage. Come hear how all that was made possible.

    This six-part Traditions of the Pacific lecture series is made possible through the generous support from Hawai’i Tourism Authority and the Tommy Holmes Foundation and in partnership with Polynesian Voyaging Society.

    Stories from Hōkūle‘a’s Worldwide Voyage: Science at Sea

    As Hōkūle‘a sailed around the world, one of its educational goals was to learn more about the Earth and her natural wonders. Hear from crew members as they share lessons learned from visiting areas such as the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands, the Galápagos National Park, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and one of the oldest and most diverse fossil reefs in the world, in Lake Champlain, Vermont. Learn about some of the science projects conducted while on the wa‘a (canoe) and how updates, weather, and navigation reports from aboard Hōkūle‘a and sister canoe Hikianalia were used to support classroom instruction related to navigation and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
