The HPA Fund
Some of the ways the HPA Fund makes a difference:
The HPA Fund makes it possible for students to utilize image recognition software to develop a turtle based recognition algorithm so that individual turtles can be identified from the images taken. Students use this software to assess the population status of green turtles in certain areas along the west coast of the Big Island.
The HPA Fund makes it possible for students to create a bionic prosthetic hand that will be made of 3D Printed Material, giving the user complete mobility of all fingers and joints in the biohand.
The HPA Fund makes it possible for our Village Campus garden to grow, ensuring that a love for nature starts early within our children.
The HPA Fund makes it possible to purchase new computers for students to use at the libraries, energy lab, computer lab, and dormitories.
The HPA Fund makes it possible for our middle school students to capture the beauty of their surroundings through writing, photography, and other multimedia.
