We kick off today’s show learning about the upcoming Hawaiian Telcom University. Ryan Miyamoto, Sr. Product Manager at Hawaiian Telcom is here to tell us all about it. Then we learn about art in science programs at a science organizations. Kirsten Carlson and Michelle Schwengel-Regala shared their experiences on the Schmidt Ocean Institute, R/V Falcor and the Bishop Museum.
We look ahead on the local tech calendar. First up is this weekend’s Hawaii Annual Code Challenge, and Leila Kagawa is here to give us an update. Then our good friend Chenoa Farnsworth joins us from Blue Startups to tell us what they’re looking for in their next cohort of companies. Finally, after the break, we explore what it means to be an “artist in residence.” More science organizations have taken a novel approach to visualize and share their work with the public. Artists Laurie Sumiye and Rebecca Rutstein are here, along with Carlie Weiner from Schmidt Ocean Institute and Tanya Ortega from the National Parks Arts Foundation.
First up, we’ll hear about two upcoming events. Jason Sewell from DevLeague joins us to tell us about DevLeague Prep, a new, introductory hands-on course for anyone who wants to learn programming. Then Alexander Mawyer and Cristina Bacchilega join us to tell us about an event called Creating Futures Rooted in Wonder: Bridges between Indigenous, Science Fiction, and Fairy Tale Studies. Finally, for the rest of the hour, we’ll talk to the scientists who were aboard the Schmidt Ocean Institute‘s vessel called the Falkor, and find out what the data they collected tells us about El Nino and how it affects the weather. Kelvin Richards and Andrei Natarov from UH SOEST are here with the details.
