Made for teachers. By teachers.

Hi! My name is Doug,

I taught elementary science for seven years and made it my students’ favorite subject. I created Mystery Science to share my approach with you. Watch the 60 second video for a demonstration of how it works.

Every lesson begins with a Mystery that hooks your students. I then narrate an unforgettable story told with stunning images and videos and punctuated with opportunities for discussion. Every lesson concludes with simple hands-on activities designed to use supplies you already have (or are easy to get).

I hope my work saves you time & inspires your students.
