Punahou's vision for the future of education is becoming a reality as construction progresses on the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community for Grades 2 – 5.
Chris Messer '79, Physical Plant project engineer, was also present to update students on the progress of the second phase of the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community.
"You had a lot of failure today," said Design Thinking, Technology and Fabrication faculty member Taryn Loveman with a smile to the students of the Rapid Prototyping and Fabrication summer school class, which took place in the newly opened D. Kenneth Richardson '48 Learning Lab in Mamiya Science Center.
Watch the sun rise and set on the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community as work continues during the summer. The shapes of the new buildings have become clearer in recent months and it is getting easier to imagine what the area will look like when it opens for the 2019 – 2020 school year.
Since the opening of the first half of Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community for Grades 2 – 5, the young plants surrounding the buildings have flourished. The ground cover, shrubs and trees provide children with a native plant forest to explore and play in.
