Since then, he has been involved with NUA through additional volunteer days and most recently helping to organize the NUA library.
Prior to joining NUA as Studio Organizer, Rob served as STEM Coordinator with the Providence After School Alliance, supporting AmeriCorps members in facilitating inquiry-based science lessons with middle school youth.
