About William H. Robertson

My name is William H. Robertson and I am a Professor in the Teacher Education Department in the College of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). My areas of expertise are in science education, curriculum development and technology integration in the K-12 levels. Additionally, I also develop, research and teach materials related to problem-based learning and action science. Previous to coming to UTEP, I was an employee at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) for ten years, where I worked in science and technology education and outreach. I completed my Ph.D. in Multicultural Teacher and Childhood Education with an emphasis in science and technology at the University of New Mexico in 2000. I have also obtained a Master's degree in Science Education from the University of Colorado – Boulder, a BA in Spanish from UTEP, a BS in Zoology from Northern Arizona University and a BA degree in History from Duke University. In 2008, I received an appointment with the Universidad Metropolitana de Ciencias de la Educación (UMCE) in Santiago, Chile as part of the Fulbright US Scholars program. I held a teaching and research appointment at UMCE from July to December of 2008. I have also been a long time participant and performer in skateboarding with over 40 years in the sport, and have developed Dr. Skateboard’s Action Science (, which addresses physical science concepts for middle school students.
