Presidential Award for Mentoring

ISEE has received a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM).  The award, established by the White House in 1995, honors people and programs that have demonstrated excellence in mentoring individuals from groups that are underrepresented in STEM.

ISEE received the award for its work developing a local science and engineering workforce for observatories on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea and Haleakala summits. ISEE's Akamai Internship Program offers intensive training in problem solving and communications skills that are highly valued by employers.
