For the past 15 years Nate MacDonald has taught students how to design, build, and program robots. Nate is now teaching middle school students how to make, tinker, and hack in order to solve our world problems. At White Hill Middle school Nate teaches three different classes: Inventors Lab, Engineering Design, and Makers & Hackers. Nate has developed STEAM lessons using high tech and low tech classroom materials for math, science and engineering.
Nate received his masters in education from the University of San Francisco and wrote his thesis on how to implement robotics programs in low performing schools. When Nate is not tinkering with a 3D printer, building robots, or trying to convince someone why the Oculus Rift is the next biggest thing he is working on developing a community of maker teachers in the Bay Area.
