Hi, my name is Doug!

I taught elementary science for seven years and made it my students’ favorite subject. I want to share my approach with you.

Every lesson begins with a Mystery that hooks your students. Then I narrate an unforgettable story told with stunning images and videos, with many opportunities for discussion. Every lesson concludes with a simple hands-on activity which uses supplies you already have (or are easy to get).

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