Abstract: Gemini Observatory conducted a pilot program to assess the STEM and Astronomy Career Awareness program for local students and teachers. The objectives were to establish a baseline evaluation process that provides actionable data/metrics on changes in awareness, attitudes and perception in a controlled program environment. The evaluation provided data on pre- and post- surveys from K–12 students and teachers in schools on the Big Island of Hawaii. Included in the pilot program and under the umbrella of the Journey through the Universe program were 1) Classroom visits, and 2) Career panels.
