There have been pockets of activity around STEM in universities and colleges throughout the country but to bring together business, industry, our political community, our students and graduate students in STEMconnector™ gives us a potency and power that is unimaginable. The in-depth work that STEMconnector™ is doing is critically important to Howard University.” Dr. Sidney Ribeau.
