W.M. Keck Observatory donates $10,000 to Imiola Astronomy Center of Hawaii

UH Hilo’s ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawai‘i has received a generous donation of $10,000 from the W. M. Keck Observatory. The donation will support visits to the ‘Imiloa Center by K-12 schoolchildren and their teachers, as part of an ambitious two-year program through which ‘Imiloa is arranging programs for all public, charter and private schools on the Big Island.

The W. M. Keck Observatory’s donation will be matched with another $20,000 effectively tripling the value of the gift–under the terms of a 2008 grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
