The Owlet is an organization that connects science teachers with the most current science research. Today, scientific findings are produced at a rapid pace, making it difficult for teachers to keep up-to-date. Scientists conducting basic and applied research need a venue to make their findings accessible to educators. The Owlet aims to bridge the gap between science and education, helping teachers and their students grow.
The Owlet provides educators with online tools and teaching resources that connect them to working scientists and other teachers. The Owlet offers mini-lectures on current scientific topics, sample lesson plans, two-week topical forums, reviews of current research, interviews with scientists, and access to a growing community of like-minded teachers. In addition to exploring current topics in biology, physics, chemistry, and earth sciences, The Owlet promotes an understanding of advances in neuroscience and cognitive theory — areas that can benefit teaching and learning practices in any classroom.
The Owlet was founded by Johanna T. Ohlmeyer PhD MEd. Dr. Ohlmeyer is a scientist at the American Museum of Natural History.
