PhD Science inspires students to wonder about the world and empowers them to make sense of it.


In 2008, a group of educators founded Great Minds with one mission: To ensure that all students have access to a comprehensive, content-rich education. In the years since, Great Minds has worked with teachers and scholars to create powerful curricula to fulfill that mission. 





"What makes an entire class of students ask to skip recess? Great Minds PhD Science! My students didn't want to stop the experiment until everyone's lightbulb had been lit!"

—Cindy Abel, Grade 4 Teacher, Valley View Public Schools, IL
