In addition to his role on “Star Trek: Voyager,” Picardo was nominated for an Emmy Award for his role as Mr. Cutlip on “The Wonder Years.” He has appeared in more than two dozen films. RobertPicardo 150x150 - UWF Innovation Institute to host actor Robert Picardo of Star Trek: Voyager

“We’re really excited about the event,” said Christian Garman, outreach manager of the Story Lab at the Innovation Institute. “Bringing in a guest like Robert Picardo is great because he’s such a beloved character from ‘Star Trek: Voyager.’ He’s also a huge proponent of science education, so he’s really the perfect person to headline the night. We feel like the evening will go a long way toward showing community members what we do at the Innovation Institute.”
