try to find ten secret "Mystery Classes" hiding around
the globe. The changing amount of sunlight at each site is the
take an inspiring journey from knowing only sunrise and sunset
times to discovering exact locations of the ten sites.

the Northern Hemisphere, daylength changes everywhere on Earth.

affect the entire web of life.
"You can't bottle the excitement of Mystery Class. You start with nothing more than a sunrise and sunset, and you end up with an exact location. When the students discover where it is, it's as if they are the first explorers there."
