Dave Forester

ISEC Professional Development Specialist

Dave is a new addition to the LANL Foundation team, coming on board as an ISEC Professional Development Specialist in spring of 2017. He spent the last 10 years as an engineering elective teacher at Santa Fe High School and was instrumental in developing the school’s Makerspace. Dave is passionate about supporting students’ acquisition of STEM skills through hands-on learning and brings a strong background of student-driven digital fabrication, including 3D printing, to the ISEC team.

A Las Vegas, NM native, Dave has been in Santa Fe since 1995 when he got involved with Santa Fe Brewing Company, and eventually realized a college dream of being  part owner of the microbrewery. After parting ways with SFBC, he focused his energy on deploying interdisciplinary curriculum with high school students, showing them the beauty and interconnectedness of math, science, and the world around them. He lives in Santa Fe with his wife and his two sons.
