F.A.B. is a way for Spyce to give back to the community in a way that goes beyond the typical operations of a restaurant. The focus of F.A.B. is to inspire more people to pursue STEM careers. We do this by teaching Food, Art, and Building.
The future of work is tending towards jobs that require a deeper understanding of knowledge in the STEM fields. We have seen firsthand that people working in STEM fields do not accurately reflect the demographics of those in the overall workforce. An analysis of US census data by the Pew Research Center states that women are underrepresented in most STEM careers, are especially absent from engineering and computer science careers, and Black and Latinx employees are underrepresented in all STEM fields.
We hope that by focusing on education, we can make a big impact on the students. These impacts aren’t always the most obvious, or have the quickest payback periods, but they are a great investment for the future, and will help create a better tomorrow.
