Mystery Science

Mystery Science provides open-and-go lessons that inspire kids to love science. Our aim is to reach children before they’ve lost their natural curiosity about the world, and to inspire them to develop a scientific understanding of it. We are reaching hundreds of thousands of children this school year by helping tens of thousands of elementary teachers to teach science. We are backed by NewSchools, Learn Capital, 500 Startups, and numerous education angel investors.

Mystery Science was started by two long-time friends, Doug Peltz andKeith Schacht. Doug was a master classroom teacher, a science department head, and the creator of an original science curriculum that made science the most popular subject at his school. Keith Schacht, our CEO, has started and sold three technology companies, was a product manager at Facebook, and a TED speaker.
