Wanted: Thoughtful, Curious People


We started Mystery.org to create better explanations for every question children have about the world. We began with the 150 most common science questions that children ask teachers. We call this collection Mystery Science. This year, 1 out of every 5 children in the U.S. has used Mystery Science, spread across 50% of elementary schools. We’re now moving on to all the other questions children have that they’ll never learn in school. In the last 18 months we received over 500,000 questions from children eager for better explanations of the world. Now we’re creating video explanations for every question. You can think of this like a visual Wikipedia for kids.

Our goal is to create a generation of better thinkers. We think this is the most important problem to solve in the world today. We are always open to connecting with candidates who are excited and think they may be a good fit for Mystery.org. Don’t hesitate to contact us at jobs@mystery.org.
