What is there to learn about the Hawaiian Islands?
Well, that depends on what you’re interested in. In addition to the fascinating history that revolves around ancient communities, British explorers and missionaries, and World War II history, the Hawaiian Islands are full of culture, language, geology, and so much more just waiting to be discovered. Think marine life, volcanoes, and Polynesian culture to start. No matter what you hope to learn, you’ll find it in Hawaii.
Where is the best place to learn in Hawaii?
While Hawaii is home to many schools and learning opportunities, the islands are indeed the world’s greatest outdoor classroom. From the vastly different climate zones found throughout the islands to volcanoes and an entire world found underwater, there are so many things to learn while spending time outdoors. Add in a variety of historic sites and some of the best stargazing in the country, and you might not even need a traditional classroom.
