Gov. David Ige will present commemorative plaques on Friday to the community college students who were members of the Project Imua team which sent a scientific/engineering payload into space.
The UH Community College team was the only community college whose payload was selected for this launch. The UH Community College students are part of a collaboration known as Project Imua (Hawaiian for ‘to move forward’). Honolulu CC students designed the payload’s engineering experiment, electronic circuitry for power and telemetry.
The ceremony honoring the students will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 23 in the governor’s chambers in the fifth floor of the state capitol.
