Leeward Discovery Fair

The annual LEEWARD DISCOVERY FAIR, held in November, is a perfect way to spend the day for all family members. Admission is free, with ample free parking.

Our annual Fair traditionally offers a family-oriented day of engaging educational interactive exhibits and great food booths. We invite the community to engage in more than 50 bustling hands-on learning activities for the entire family.

This year, due to the coronavirus, we celebrated our 31st Discovery Fair online and brought the FUN to you! Our talented faculty and instructors put together twenty hands-on activities that included homemade ice cream, creative art projects, learning about physics, LEGO, and much more.

We hope to host the Fair at our campus again soon!

We hope you and your ‘ohana enjoyed our 2021 Discovery Fair (online). If you missed it, you can view our 3 most popular videos below, and see the full playlist on YouTube.
Did you have fun? Take our survey and tell us what you think. Mahalo!

Description: Ice Cream in a Bag is a great activity to do with children. Itʻs a great way to get children involved in helping in the kitchen, and it teaches kids to learn how to measure ingredients. It also teaches children that yummy food takes effort to make since shaking the bag of half and half is what turns it from liquid to ice cream. Lastly, it can teach kids that putting salt and ice together can melt ice, but at the same time, it can keep the water/ice very cold.
