Professor Matthew Hartings, a chemist at the American University in Washington, D.C., came up with an easy-to-understand and adorable way to teach chemistry. In “Dogs Teaching Chemistry,” Paige, a Border collie, and Dexter, a mixed breed, remain very well-behaved while demonstrating some aspects of chemical bonding. They also display the finer points of how a covalent bond works by sharing their toys, which substitute as electrons.

Said Professor Hartings’ class was inspired by his two loves: chemistry and training dogs.

People who have viewed the video are big fans. One Twitter user wrote, “A chemistry class taught by dogs … If only I had access to this type of teaching at school.” Another tweeted, “The Internet is a brilliant place. Dogs teaching you chemistry.” The video has already scored more than 23,000 views since being uploaded on Sunday. Let’s hope that Paige and Dexter continue to share their wisdom in upcoming lessons.
