Tom Collins

Tom Collins studied for his BSc in biology at Cardiff University and his career path has taken him in quite  a different route than he expected when starting out. Spending time teaching in Japan, at various environmental centers in the UK, and working as a class teacher in London, he now finds himself in Chicago. As head of science and STEAM at the British International School of Chicago – Lincoln Park (part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools), Tom is leading a young STEAM department which includes 2 science labs, an art studio, maker space, technology hub, and design lab. Aside from day to day teaching of science to k-5, Tom is working with MIT to develop a STEAM approach to teaching and is inspiring pupils as young as 3 and 4 in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
