Northeast Florida Regional STEM2 Hub, Inc.

Northeast Florida

About

The Northeast Florida Regional STEM2 Hub was formed in 2015 by the Jacksonville business community with a mission to convene, inspire, and invest in the STEM2 fields by providing the essential missing elements to accelerate the growth of STEM2 education and careers. Since our inception, we have opened doors to high quality STEM programs to over 100,000 local students, both within and outside of the school day. With a focus on empowering all learners, especially those underrepresented in the high-wage, high-demand tech careers, we work every day to address inequities so that we can build pathways that will lead to a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce. Our work spans from afterschool and summer programs to developing system-changing strategies to integrate high quality STEM programs across the curriculum and in the school day. With career in mind, and early childhood as the starting point, we introduce coding, computer science, robotics, drones, artificial intelligence, data science, other technologies, and career exploration, while embedding critical thinking and an inventive and entrepreneurial mindset into everything we do. We believe in the power of partnership and work closely with our partners to leverage their expertise and weave together integrated solutions to build the strongest possible experiences and outcomes for our stakeholders.
