International education summit to be held in Hilo

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) An international education summit will be held on the Big Island next month.

Organizers say the Pacific Astronomy and Engineering Education Summit is modeled after a super science fair in Japan.

The four-day event sponsored by the Thirty Meter Telescope and the County of Hawaii will feature high school students from India, China, Japan, Canada and the Big Island. The countries are also partners in building the Thirty Meter Telescope, which will be the world's largest and most advanced optical telescope atop Mauna Kea.

The summit will include science presentations, cultural presentations, team problem-solving activities and workshops by astronomers and educators.

It will be held July 23-26 at the University of Hawaii's Hilo campus and the Imiloa Astronomy Center.
