FAMU announces partnership with Chevron, Fab Foundation to launch a fab lab for Tallahassee

What started with a Zoom call two years ago became Florida A&M University’s partnership with leading energy company Chevron and nonprofit organization The Fab Foundation to launch a digital fabrication lab on campus.

The laboratory, called the “FAMU STR²EAM Chevron Innovation Fab Lab,” will serve the Tallahassee community and expose K-12 students to the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) field.

“I dreamed about a lot of things growing up in the south side of Memphis, Tennessee, but I didn’t have a fab lab where I can go to turn those dreams and ideas into reality,” FAMU President Larry Robinson said during a Thursday event with Chevron executives as well as administrators and faculty members from both the FAMU College of Education and FAMU Developmental Research School.

“We’re always looking for a better way of doing things, but we don’t always have the resources necessary to make it happen,” he added. “Just imagine how important it would be to have a tool to do it here at Florida A&M University.”

As plans for the celebration are finalized, information will be available on the FAMU DRS website at www.FAMUDRS.org.
