Scientists get to solve puzzles every day, because science and research involve finding solutions from the clues that we are given. Just like with brainteasers (or brain teasers) and riddles, the answers to science mysteries are not always easy to see at first. With time and effort, they eventually become clear.
But before solving the hundreds of brainteasers and riddles below, why not learn more about your brain by viewing the parts of the brain and what they do and taking a video tour of your brain to see how it functions each day. And then have some fun with all our brainteasers and riddles below. We give you the answers for every one so you can check to see how well you did. Challenge your parents and friends too.
