About the Author

Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Sarah Benton Feitlinger and I have been teaching or involved in science education since the summer of 2003. I have shared science with students in nature and environmental centers, museums and in the traditional classroom. I have been studying science and nature in one way or another pretty much my whole life!

Currently I'm a work-at-home mom, a freelance K-12 science curriculum developer, children's science writer, blogger, and Outschool Educator.

I have a passion for making science understandable, and my goal is to make it accessible for everyone. I love inspiring curious little minds. My blog focuses on creative and inspiring science, STEM and STEAM activities, resources and products for teachers, parents and students.

My background:
I have a B.A. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Skidmore College and a M.Ed in Science Education from the University of Washington. I have had the good fortune of working for a variety of wonderful organizations and learning from many excellent educators and writers, these include: Montshire Museum of Science, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, The Ecology School (Formerly Ferry Beach Ecology School), IslandWood, University of Washington Teacher Education Program, Pine Cobble School, Exploration Summer Programs (EXPLO), Bement School ELAC program, Bement School and various writing projects for, Footsteps 2 Brilliance, TalkWits and DOGO News
