Ukes go high-tech ih Hawaii.
For example, at Aiea Intermediate School, the 12 teachers chose a TTP project that addressed the Hawaiian ukulele.  The shop teacher taught students how to create the ukulele in AutoCAD using 3D techniques, and then to construct one using actual shop tools.  The English teacher taught how to write project materials, including procedures and reports.  The math teacher taught students how to calculate the correct material thicknesses, angles, and similar physical features.  The music teacher taught them how to play the ukulele.  The art teacher taught students to create marketing materials and illustration manuals.  And the history and geography teachers taught the historical significance of the ukulele around the Pacific Basin and in Asia.
