- "FROM ROCK 'N' ROLL TO A MARS SPACE SCIENTIST" - A science lesson plan which allows students to identify science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers that are represented on a mission such as the Mars Science Laboratory. They will conduct research into the requirements of entering a STEM field of their choosing and be able to describe where they might work and what sorts of projects they might be involved in.
- The City Dark - In this lesson, students will study the nesting process of the endangered loggerhead turtle species and watch a video clip that illustrates how artificial lighting along nesting beaches disorients turtle hatchlings and hinders their ability to reach the ocean successfully. Students will then identify ways that humans can reduce the threat of such lighting to natural habitat.
- Youth Obesity: Schools Fight Back - Students will learn the difference between healthy and unhealthy snacks. They will examine why people like unhealthy snacks and conduct an investigation to find healthy replacements for them.
