Mystery Science


Mystery Science provides video-based lessons, each of which is accompanied by a hands-on experiment or simulation.  It is available for one year in Early Elementary (usually grades K-2) and one year in Upper Elementary (usually grades 3-5). 

The videos and activity sheets are all provided.  Families will need to provide their own household supplies (items such as paper clips, scotch tape, vinegar or lemon juice, etc.) for some units.
