Dean Howarth

The Natural Philosopher

Dean Howarth, a veteran physics teacher, brings history to life at museums, historic sites, festivals, conferences, schools, science and history camps, and other institutions with connections to both science and history. For over 20 years he has engaged in historical interpretation, as a private enterprise, under the moniker "The Natural Philosopher", along with his students.

As the Natural Philosopher, Dean performs living history lectures, lessons and shows based on the rich history of science. His narratives span the ages and tell the stories of great scientists, such as Brahe, Newton, Franklin and Priestley.
