He is keen to embrace the shift towards 21st century learning and STEM education while continuing to innovate and advocate on behalf of Australian science educators,” said Geoff Quinton, President of ASTA.

Nathan will commence his term in 2019 as the ASTA President Elect, before officially stepping into the role of President in 2020-2021.
