Take the greatest mysteries in world history. Add a young, intelligent student inspired by Exploration Enrichment and Research (EER). Mix in a curious and purpose-driven teacher.

Let the concoction congeal until it becomes Ruthie Caplinger's History Mystery course at the Jefferson City Public School (JCPS) gifted program at the Southwest campus.

Part of the lead teacher's work is researching and designing curriculum.
