The group visited various schools and sites including Maui Preparatory Academy, Mid-Pac Institute, Iolani School, St. Louis High School, Institute for Astronomy – Maui, Maui College, University of Hawaii – Manoa, University of Hawaii – West Oahu, Hawaii Pacific University, Hawaii Tokai, Leeward Community College, Kapiolani Community College, John A.
