David Lockett is a K-16 Outreach and Grants Proposal Development Specialist at the School of Applied Computational Sciences.

He is a recipient of the International Society of Technology in Education STEM Professional Learning Network Award, which is awarded to STEM teachers that have displayed leadership and advocacy in understanding and advancing the authentic use of STEM in education.
David is currently a collaborator on the Innovators Developing Accessible Tools in Astronomy (IDATA), a NSF STEM+C project, working to advance knowledge and understanding of best practices in teaching and learning related to computation and computational thinking in astronomy.

He has endeavored to impact local, state, and national initiatives in a variety of project-based learning opportunities at numerous national and state conferences, such as the National Science Teachers Association, International Society for Technology in Education, and Future of Educational Technology Conference, showcasing computer science and STEM initiatives.

David believes that as a CS and STEM teacher, accessible instruction and technologies that promote student equity and engagement, collaboration, and problem-solving is key. He is increasingly active with national efforts to provide more CS and STEM role models for students and builder stronger connections to the professional scientific community.
