During his more than 30 years working as an engineer for NASA, Frank Robinson Jr. remembers meeting after meeting where he was the only person of color sitting at the table.
“That changed over the years, but not much,” Robinson said Tuesday. “The growth was very slow. I would like to see those changes happen a little more rapidly.”
In order to help facilitate the change, Robinson and others launched the STEM2 Hub program in Northeast Florida three years ago. One of the goals of the program is to get more female students and students of color interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, also known as STEM.
