Matthew Deren

STEM Coach

Matthew has a natural curiosity about the way things work. Graduating with a degree in mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania and a master’s in environmental engineering from the University of Virginia, Matthew has worked in the fields of Sustainable Construction and Energy Efficiency for 20 years. He has also published two books: the first on patterns in nature, and the second on the patterns that unite math, science, and engineering together as one. Matthew’s dream is to rebuild all the monumental inventions of the past with students, in the hope of giving them the confidence to create the inventions of the future.
