Intersection of Skateboarding and STEM Education | Dr. Skateboard | TEDxUTEP
Dr. Skateboard talks about his time as a professional skateboarder and the importance of exciting young students about STEM. Meet William H. “Dr. Skateboard” Robertson, a professor of science and technology education who has produced more than 70 educational science videos targeting K-12 educators and university teacher educators. Through “Physics of Skateboarding” demonstrations, he showcases physics and mathematics concepts in unique ways and demonstrates that service within the community can be tied closely to teaching and learning. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
