About Me


Dan Hunting Butterflies in Thailand 2014

My name is Danupon Drake or you could call me Dan the young scientist. I’m born in July 2005. I’ve discovered that science is fun, and then I read a book about science. I did all the experiments in the books and they were very fun. Then, I have bought so many science books. After that, I was thinking how to make the insects around my house usefully. So I tried to put my insects in frames.

My insect adventure starts in Thailand 2013. There are so many different kinds of rare insects in my garden. And then I started to collect bugs in my garden. My father built me a bug net to catch butterflies (see the picture above). I have been collecting insects until the year 2016. But I stopped, because my mom is sad of the death of the insects. That is how my insect adventure ended. But I have 73 insects total (see picture below).


My bug collection

What about my science adventure? My science adventure started by myself. I bought a lot of science kits and they’re very fun. And then, I loved science, so I bought a lot of science books and performed experiments. After that, I had set up a science lab and bought some more equipment and supplies. And then I’ve been experimenting until now. I started homeschooling in 2015. Now, I’m making a blog about science so everyone could enjoy.

I perform experiments from books, the internet, and from myself.

Science is the way to understand and explain things on the world. Science is started by questions and curiosity. And if you don’t have those two things, you wouldn’t like science.

I agree with mysself that science is important, and I approve of my mission to show people (especially kids) that there are more interesting things in science than what they find on their smart phones or playing games. Science feeds the mind and helps us find solutions to survival in the world!

To see my adventure, go to the first post which is on the bottom and continue up!

My goal is to be popular, share knowledge, and explain why science is fun.

  4. It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning without ‘curiosity’. Add a pinch of ‘focus’ and ‘determination’ and what is created is a great life ahead.
    Enjoy your day Dan. Thanks for stopping by

    • Man, this is the best comment you ever wrote to me. My dad said I’m a special and a rare kid. And he’s very happy that I don’t play video games (well, I sometimes I do and that’s the way to relief stress). I started to like science when I was 9 years old but I didn’t have a blog that time. I just did some simple experiments at that time. Now I know how to use advance chemicals and tools. After that, I thought having a blog will entertain my followers and readers. But there is one thing bad about blogging: BAD COMMENTS! If I get more follows and likes, I will sometime get a bad comment from people that are jealous of me. If I get a bad comment, I won’t care. Because why listen to jerks? I never receive a bad comment, but someone will surely hate me. But still, I will keep posting science experiments for everyone. I like science because I wanted to question things and use some equipment. And one more reason why I like science: Good Grades in school. If you get good grades it will make you look more “leader” and cooler in school. Until now I’m still receiving good grades in science. Well, sorry for the long comment.

  12. You are amazing! I admire your love for science. I hope you are still blogging when you go to college because I can’t wait to see what your degree will be. I wish more teenagers left the computer games alone and were more like you!

  13. Your butterfly collection is very interesting, though I do agree with your mum’s thought process and a high-five to you for stopping because of this reason. Though I am not a “science” person but hubby (he is a die-hard science man and will love going thru your blog…) and I are ardent nature lovers and constantly marvel at this breath-taking universe that is our habitat. Looking frwd to going through your posts! Good luck with all your upcoming adventures and endeavors!
