Story-Guided Science Courses

For middle school classrooms, micro-schools, and at-home learning groups

Your Students Are the Lead Scientists

Through a series of short 3-4-minute videos, we guide your students through the most exciting moments in science history. They are invited to lead the investigations into the most profound ideas that have shaped our world.


Each lab begins with a challenge, and can only be solved by setting up an experiment using the supplies provided in the QC Kit.

  • No thick textbooks

  • No endless strings of online lectures

  • No high stakes testing

Your Students Become Part of the Story of Science

Your students are placed directly into the paths of discovery to face the same challenges as the great scientists from history - Lavoisier, Bohr, Darwin, Newton, Einstein, Mandeleev, and others. Courses are rooted in the actual historical development of science.. 


Your students see science in its raw form!

The Philosophy of Teaching Through History

Why Our Courses are Rooted in Stories of Great Scientists

Science Begins with the Unexplained

The history of science is an epic drama of failures, successes, and ultimately of radical change in how humans perceive the world. Yet the profound ideas, which win out all began with simple mysteries, questions, and unexplainable hunches.

Knowledge Originates In Exploration

As with the iconic scientists in history, when brave students put their own beliefs to test on questions presented to them, creativity happens, big ideas emerge, and new knowledge is constructed. 


And we want to give every school and every teacher the resources to make this happen.
