April 2010: HONOLULU, Hawaii – Alaka'ina Foundation; Digital Bus Promotes Sustainability

UPload, The Quarterly Journal for Science and Techology in Hawaii is a publication of Hawaii Business Magazine and the Hawaii Science & Technology Council


Since its launch in 2004, the Digital Bus has introduced 9,000 K-12 students on Maui, Molokai and Kauai to the wonders of hands-on science and technology careers in their own backyards. This summer, the mobile science and technology lab program plans to unveil a "sustainable" Digital Bus that will feature photovoltaic panels on its roof, solar powered fans instead of traditional air conditioning, and biodiesel as its fuel.


"We see our new Digital Bus as a demonstration model itself to engage students in various sustainable energy practices and, through projects, expose them to tech careers in sustainability"
