Through a grant from the Native Hawaiian Educational Program, Kanu o ka 'Aina New Century Public Charter School launched Kalo, Inc. An essential design principle was to provide opportunities for students to become producers (rather than just consumers) of multimedia. Kalo, Inc. was an opportunity to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to design, modify, and apply technology. The intended outcome was to use the high school to train students to become technological problem solvers.

Kalo, Inc. involves 67 students, the majority of whom are Native Hawaiian. The enterprise is best suited for students in grade 9 through 12, but it can also include talented and motivated students in lower grades. Kalo Inc. meets or exceeds a variety of Hawaii's Content Standards:
