Abstract: Journey to the Sun (JTTS) is NSO's solar science program developed specifically for Maui County public schools, which include those from rural islands Moloka‘i and Lana‘i. The program provides solar physics professional development for teachers, solar STEM lessons and activities for students, and an H-alpha solar telescope to schools. JTTS has also partnered with the Hawaiian Immersion program, ‘O Hina i ka Malama, where Hawaiian culture is the foundation, and students perpetuate Hawaiian practices. Early Hawaiians were astronomers, and we advocate for Hawaiian leaders in solar astronomy.
