This web site contains a set of 12 inquiry-based modules for grades 8-12 on materials science, chromatics, electricity, and season changes.  Each module is aligned with national science education standards and has been refined through classroom testing.  The materials were developed to engage students with highly unique hands-on materials to study color concepts, incandescent light bulbs, DC circuits, and more.  The modules include detailed lesson plans with objectives, student activity guides, assessments, and background information for teachers.  

Accompanying hands-on lab materials may be purchased at a very low cost from the publisher.
