Canada France Hawaii Telescope

The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, with an observatory on Mauna Kea but with its headquarters in Waimea, Hawaii opened its doors on Friday to more than 100 students and the community in celebration of Manufacturing Day 2017. The event was part of an effort to showcase the diverse manufacturing that occurs on the Big Island of Hawaii and draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Tours were offered of the CFHT machine shop, and there were demonstrations and displays from other manufactures in the community. Friday’s design of choice was a lego block; easy for students to design and manufacture.
