Nathaniel Brown


Head of Computing Science

Nathaniel Brown


Nathaniel holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education from the Queensland University of Technology. He is passionate about computers, technology and programming both inside and outside of the classroom. He worked in the IT industry for a number of years as a programmer and systems administrator before becoming a teacher and he brings this wealth of experience to his lessons.

Nathaniel has lived in China for over seven years and was previously the Head of Computing at The British School of Beijing. His current project at BISS is to create a lunch time STEAM programme that involves 3D pens, Virtual Reality, drones, sewing, robotics and Arduino hardware, as well as supervised use of laser cutters, 3D printers, drills, saws and hammers. This fabrication and creation of objects by hand and using machines is something that all students should experience. In the future, Nathaniel is hoping to introduce a CNC machine to the STEAM room, as well as, Virtual Reality into the classroom.

Nathaniel is married to Sheree who is a teacher in Early Years, and together they have two children. Nathaniel enjoys travelling and learning Chinese, and in his free time, he likes to play European board games and write software using the latest technology. He is currently trying to finish Beat Saber by completing all levels on Expert+ and he is already over halfway there.
