During the fall of 1999, Mililani Teacher Elaine Mahoney engaged her CADD class in an astronomical project to search for ancient alignments at the Kukaniloko site on Oahu. The site was where Hawaiian Royalty came to give birth. During the semester, the class visited the site, and used a GPS system to make measurements of rock alignments to ascertain if there were any significant astronomical alignments. Two of the students, S. Kawakammi and B. Yasuda entered their project in the TechQuest 2000 competition and won 2nd place.
