About Us

Owner & Program Director
John Miller

Over 25 years ago I saw a pressing need for additional science education. At that time, I was working as a consultant for the Newark Museum, in their Education Enrichment Programs.


I realized that there was a need for quality, fun and lasting enrichment programs for children and adults. I knew that all kids loved outer space and dinosaurs, so I started the Pearl Observatory, a traveling Earth & Space Science Education Company.


My mission is to bring the Wonders of the Universe to schools, camps, scouts, libraries, senior centers, etc. Since starting Pearl Observatory 25 years ago, my programs have provided over 100,000 kids and adults with fantastic hands on science knowledge.
