Within this portal you will find step-by-step lessons, student assignments and resources designed to fulfill National Science Education Standards for middle and high school science classes. These lessons are designed to be adaptable—as simple or complex as needed—to meet the needs and abilities of your class. This site should be interactive, with the goal of scientists, students and teachers from all over the world interacting via a blog. So we encourage you to post pictures and stories from your classroom. In addition we want to hear from you. If you have ideas to expand upon a lesson, or if you’ve created a unique lesson of your own that you’d like to share, please contact us.
