Welcome to the 8th Annual Onizuka Day of Exploration (ODE), taking place on Saturday, April 6, 2024 at the University of Hawaii West Oahu in Kapolei.

Are you looking for a fun and educational experience for your kids and family? Look no further! The Aloha Council, Boy Scouts of America has partnered with the University of Hawaii West Oahu to bring you a STEM event like no other.

At the 2024 Onizuka Day of Exploration, you'll find over 100 hands-on activities, workshops, and classes for all ages to enjoy. With a special focus on Hawaiian culture, sustainability, and career development, there's something for everyone to learn and discover. We have workshops on robotics, coding, renewable energy, and much more. There will also be a variety of interactive exhibits and displays, as well as live demonstrations and talks from experts in various fields. Plus, the event is FREE and open to the public, so you don't have to be a scout to participate!

For easy access and convenience, there's plenty of free parking available at the event location. And for updates and schedules, be sure to check out our website at www.onizukaday.com where you can also register in advance.

The event will start with an opening ceremony at 8:00 am. All Scouts and Scouters are encouraged to arrive in time for the opening ceremony. The booths, workshops, and exhibits will open at 9:00 am and close at 4:00 pm. That's 7 hours of non-stop fun and learning!

And if you're worried about missing out on all the fun, have no fear! You can check out our website at www.onizukaday.com for updated information and schedules.
