STEM Everyday: #126 | Create, Educate, Empower, and Inspire | feat. Bill Van Loo

It is not uncommon to find Bill working in a variety of media including wood, electronics, code, and digital fabrication as a maker. When he is not doing that he writes, produces, and records his own music and that of others plus a freelance photographer, based in Ypsilanti, Michigan. By profession, Bill is a technology, engineering, and design educator. He is passionate about empowering kids. Currently employed at A2 STEAM at Northside, a brand-new K-8 program that is part of Ann Arbor Public Schools. he runs the STEAM Lab, the school’s space for hands-on learning through the STEAM subject areas (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math). As a teacher, I value hands-on projects, cross-curricular learning experiences, and use of the design process to show students how to solve problems.
