This July, 12 Village Vikings ventured to Hawai’i for this year’s MIT Reveal Challenge. Their mission? Explore unique scientific sites and learn how photography relates and adds to the scientific world. During this ten-day trip, friendships were formed, discoveries were made, and fun new experiences were shared among all.
On the beautiful Islands of Hawai’i, our students traveled everywhere from beaches with sand as black as night to dormant volcanoes. They partook in many challenging and exciting activities, including beach cleanups, stargazing, dissections, volunteering at festivals, removing invasive plant species, making electrical devices from scratch and even exploring underground lava tubes and underwater reefs! Enjoy some snapshots from the trip below.
