On April 14, 2015, Mayor Alan Arakawa presented a Hawaiʻi STEM Education Week Proclamation to representatives from the Maui Economic Development Board and Maui STEMworks students.

“Strong science, technology, engineering and mathematics [STEM] education programs are vital to the economic future to the state of Hawaiʻi,” the mayor said. “We are excited that here in Maui County we have exceptional programs, such as the 6th Annual Hawaiʻi STEM Conference happening on April 17 and 18, that help to empower our youth and educators.”

The conference will be held at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, 3700 Wailea Alanui.

Presented by MEDB’s Women in Technology Project, this popular conference will attract 500-plus students and teachers representing 30 intermediate and high schools throughout the state. Local and national industry professionals will offer some of the most innovative technologies in the world. Attendees will receive first-hand exposure to advanced technologies, the latest software training, and real-world challenges in the form of fun, hands-on team projects and competitions.


“The County of Maui continues to be a staunch supporter of STEM education programs and is proud to work in partnership with MEDB to help build and strengthen Hawaiʻi’s STEM education-to-workforce pipeline,” said Mayor Arakawa.
