The Keynote Speaker will be Robert Rashford; an internationally known aerospace engineer who makes tools for use in outer space. He worked closely with a team of scientists to repair the first Hubble Space Telescope and restore its 20/20 vision. This telescope has been useful to out study of outer space and has taken pictures of never before seen stars, planets, and galaxies. Rashford was born in Kingston, Jamaica on June 15th 1957. His family was not well off and his creativity led him to make his own toys using simple things like cotton reels and cardboard. Learn more about this speaker by reading his bio on Caribbean Icons.
