The Hawaii Project Center offers projects in a wide range of topics, but because of the ecological uniqueness of the islands, many projects will be in the area of environmental conservation and sustainable development. This may include topics in environmental restoration, invasive species management, conservation outreach, and citizen science, among others. Other projects may address challenges in topics such as historic preservation and community development.
Teams will work with a range of sponsors, including federal, state, and local government agencies and non-profit organizations. Past projects include:
- Determining the Feasibility of a Reusable Takeout Container System for Hilo, HI
- Creating Strategies to Increase Effectiveness at the East Hawai‘i Cultural Center
- Feasibility of Protecting Residential Structures from Wildfires using a Fixed Exterior Fire Fighting System
