Public Schools

This Spring, OWL commenced a partnership with Albuquerque Public Schools, a district that serves over 80,000, or about 25% of students in New Mexico. The collaboration involved supporting around 20 teachers in designing Summer STEAM Experiences that integrated makerspaces, outdoor education, High Quality Project-Based Learning, and Design Thinking.


The work resulted in a highly successful summer program for hundreds of students that has subsequently garnered major attention, having been featured by the local news and APS communications department multiple times. Inspired by the program’s success, many teachers from the summer cohort are now beginning to bring these strategies into their classrooms to create new and exciting learning opportunities for their students!


Of teachers agreed OWL provided highly customized, professional support that listened and respected all voices and needs!

Public Schools

Albuquerque Public School leaders invited OWL to submit a Request for Proposal outlining the potential to provide a multi-year design thinking culture to scale learner-centered, experiential strategies and support. Efforts to scale the practices and inspiration from current cohorts into new cohorts are underway this fall!

“EVERY teacher in APS needs OWL as a resource and educational motivator!”
