Hawaii Science and Technology Museum-- inspiring teaching methods

A recent Hawaii Tribune Herald article wrote the following about our speaker:

"Last week, 11-year-old Justin Takemoto received an envelope in the mail sealed with wax.

He tore it open to find an acceptance letter to the Gwenyn Gwych School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Hawaii wizarding school within the Harry Potter world.

Justin, an avid Harry Potter fan, was thrilled.

“I was literally jumping all over the house,” Justin recalled Wednesday. “I was pretty excited.”

Justin was one of 75 East Hawaii students to receive the Gwenyn Gwych acceptance letters, sent to get students enthused for the Harry Potter theme of this year’s fall break STEAM camp at E.B. de Silva Elementary School.

The camp is produced by the Hawaii Science and Technology Museum, a Hilo nonprofit that formed in 2015. The museum runs mobile library and school exhibits, along with several other camps during the year, aimed at fostering student interest in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.

My Story

Tymalaya was born in Oregon City, Oregon. Before the age of 5, she helped answer phones at the wrecking yard her parents owned. Being a helping hand was always first on her mind. After her parents sold the wrecking yard, they started an upholstery business where Tymalaya learned how to sew and reupholster automobiles. She was always in the shop learning and specially learning about classic cars. During high school Tymalaya played volleyball, was in leadership roles and continued helping in the upholstery shop. Every summer Tymalaya participated in church camp where she was recruited to join Pacific Christian College. During college Tymalaya played basketball and studied social services. After college Tymalaya was asked to join a technology company and has been in technology since then.  Tymalaya is a principal connector in everything she does. She has a divine passion for helping people and a true interconnection. Her favorite phrase to her 5 grandchildren is… give, give, give, and maybe you will get and don’t forget to smile because it feels good.
