Justin Robinson is a South Carolina native and ventured into the education field by accident. Justin didn’t start his career as a teacher and never considered education as a career path for himself growing up. He has a diverse design and engineering background in a variety of fields, which helps fuel his desire and passion for STEM Education. He worked in the mechanical, civil, and architectural design fields before being recruiting into teaching. Justin completed a degree in Engineering Graphics at Tri-County Technical College and was certified to teach through the DIRECT certification program through the State Department of Education at a Master’s Level. Over the course of his high school teaching career, Justin successfully completed five graduate courses from Purdue University, University of Kentucky, and the University of South Carolina certifying him to teach Mechanical and Architectural Design, Introduction to Engineering, Principles of Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, and Engineering Design and Development. He also developed and taught the curriculum for mechanical and architectural design for the South Carolina Virtual School. Justin taught high school students for 11 years before deciding he could make a bigger impact on education by working with teachers to create collaborative and project-based learning opportunities for students through STEM Education. Through his various educational and real- world experiences, he brings a different approach to education. Justin believes that knowledge mis power and that knowledge without application is useless. He loves being able to take the knowledge that students already have and show them how to apply it to things that they are passionate about. In addition to consulting and training at schools across the nation through Robinson Learning, LLC.  Justin also started working with CrossFlight Sky Solutions in 2017 where he helped develop one of the most successful drone curriculum products in the country for both business and industry and high schools.  He is now acting in the role of COO of CrossFlight Sky Solutions, a national leader in Drone Education.
