Student Spotlight: Nate Koch

Nate Koch is a senior at Denver’s East High School. He turns 18 this year. And he’s already a published author and filmmaker.

Nate’s book is called Stretching Ever Outward. It’s available in paperback and Kindle format through Amazon, and you can check it out right here. The project came about after Nate learned about NaNoWriMo, the popular novel-writing initiative that has spawned many budding writers.

He’s also involved with a program called Meet the Middle East, and if that’s not enough, Nate somehow found time to make a dazzling short film called Chromatography. Take a look:

The Big Brain Club was turned on to Nate’s work through one of our school liaisons, Denver Public Schools’ Brian Weaver. We connected Brian with our friends at Colorado’s Best on Channel 2, and lo and behold, Nate was selected as a Colorado’s Best Kid last week!

If you’re a teacher or school administrator who needs another reason to connect with The Big Brain Club — besides the free programs and resources we provide — consider us a gateway to recognition for students who are achieving remarkable things.

Congratulations to Nate, Brian, and the wonderful academic community at East High School. Smart is cool!
