RE: S.C.R. No. 176

S.D. 1

 

 

Honorable Robert Bunda

President of the Senate

Twenty-First State Legislature

Regular Session of 2002

State of Hawaii

Sir:

Your Committees on Education and Economic Development and Technology, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 176 entitled:

"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII, DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, AND GOVERNORíS SPECIAL ADVISOR FOR TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT TO SUPPORT AND PROMOTE THE HAWAII CUBESAT PROJECT,"

beg leave to report as follows:

The purpose of this measure is to request the University of Hawaii, Department of Education, and Governor's Special Advisor for Technology Development to support and promote the Hawaii CubeSat Project.

Your Committees received testimony in support of the measure from the Governor's Special Advisor for Technology Development and Department of Education.

Your Committees find that the Hawaii CubeSat Project is a great example of using technology and providing hands-on experience for elementary and college students.

Your Committees have amended the measure, including the title, to request the parties to endorse rather than support the Hawaii CubeSat Project and similar projects.

As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Education and Economic Development and Technology that are attached to this report, your Committees concur with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 176, as amended herein, and recommend its adoption in the form attached hereto as S.C.R. No. 176, S.D. 1.

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Education and Economic Development and Technology,
