Rob Zomber

Innovation Lab Engineer
The Nueva School

With a non-traditional background for education, Rob is a passionate teacher and a daring instructor. He has worked as a fabricator, hotrod builder, freelance writer, small business owner, and product designer, before landing in education as an Innovation-Lab Engineer at the Nueva school. His diverse pursuits have led to deep passions which he enthusiastically shares with students through extracurricular activities, unique electives, and student projects.
His roundabout journey into education has embedded into him the importance of inspiring and building confidence in young potential designers and engineers. He strongly believes in the importance of learning how to learn and problem solve over memorizing technical jargon and pushes every student to learn to work outside of their comfort zone.
