The Chemical Reactions SciPack provides an initial context by describing the abundance of chemical reactions in the surrounding world, then relates chemical reactions to electron configurations, describes bonding, and outlines special bonds among carbon atoms. It describes various types of chemical reactions, outlines the importance of factors such as timescales, concentration, pressure, temperature, molecular configuration and catalysts on chemical reaction rates. Finally, the SciPack relates chemical reactions to energy input and release, and connects reactions to the conservation of matter.

The Cell Structure and Function SciPack explores how cells, the basic building blocks of all organisms, function as systems of organelles and associated structures in a dynamic equilibrium between its internal and external environment. The focus is on topics related to Standards and Benchmarks related to the structure of various types of cells, the molecular workings inside the cell, and the role of proteins as the main structural and functional molecules of the cell. This SciPack uses the “cell as a system” concept.

The Coral Reef Ecosystems SciPack, co-developed between NOAA and NSTA, explores the unique and diverse ecosystem of the coral reef. The focus is on Standards and Benchmarks related to populations and ecosystems using coral reefs and their immediate environment as an example. Because the Standards and Benchmarks present the concepts of populations and ecosystems generically, without reference to a specific ecosystem or the organisms in the system, coral reefs are used to provide the context through which concepts in a marine ecosystem are explored.

The Cells and Chemical Reactions SciPack explores the chemical reactions that take place in plant and animal cells. The SciPack takes a close look at the process of photosynthesis in plant cells and cellular respiration in plant and animal cells. Additionally, this SciPack looks at how the rates of these reactions can be affected by temperature, pH, hydration levels, and enzymes.

The Cell Division and Differentiation SciPack explores the cellular processes, including the selective expression of specific genes, which allow for the differentiation and specialization of cells. Additionally, this SciPack looks at cell division (mitosis) and the cell cycle, including the cycle for unhealthy (cancerous cells); the hierarchy between cells, tissues, organs and the organism; and the difference between specialized (differentiated) and unspecialized (undifferentiated) cells.

The Flow of Matter and Energy in Ecosystems SciPack explores the systemic interplay and flow of matter and energy throughout ecosystems, populations and organisms. Energy from the sun is the direct or indirect source of energy for nearly all organisms, it can flow only in one direction through ecosystems: from the sun to producers, to consumers, and finally to decomposers. Unlike the unidirectional transformation of energy, matter cycles among ecosystem components. One key ecosystem function, the cycling of carbon from non-living to living components and back, serves as a primary example in this SciPack for how all nutrients cycle on Earth. Webs and pyramids are used to model and communicate about the transfer of energy and cycling of matter within an ecosystem, representing how the total living biomass stays roughly constant—cycling materials from old to new life—accompanied by an irreversible flow of energy from captured sunlight into dissipated heat.

The Nutrition SciPack, co-developed between FDA and NSTA, provides an overview of nutrition and the other factors that contribute to making choices that lead to a healthy lifestyle. The main focus is on the main types of nutrients and how much of each are needed to maintain a healthy body, depending on individual lifestyles. It also covers the role nutrients and energy from food play in your body’s processes, how food is broken down so it can be used by your body, and balancing nutrients for your body’s needs and activities. This SciPack touches on Standards and Benchmarks related to cells, the function of cells (and groups of cells) in body systems, and energy, matter, and molecules in cells; however, the overall topic of nutrition is an interdisciplinary subject matter.

The Resources and Human Impact SciPack, co-developed between NOAA and NSTA, explores the role society plays in environmental degradation, and the technological solutions, including resource management, that arises from environmental issues. Human beings modify all components of Earth’s ecosystems as they use and consume available resources. The amount and rate of consumption is affected by the population growth and access to technology. This SciPack is focused on Standards and Benchmarks related to interactions in and between ecosystem; population growth and carrying capacity; resource use; and environmental degradation and changes to Earth’s systems.

The Interdependence of Life SciPack explores the interactions between organisms and the environments in which they live. There are many relationships between organisms which can be beneficial or damaging. These interactions and the competition for resources in part determine in what locations organisms can survive and thrive. These locations all over the world are categorized by the climate of those areas and the organisms living in them. The delicate balance that is kept by the organisms in these regions is examined and demonstrated, not just from the perspective of the natural world, but based on human interactions and interference as well. The result is a representation of the rich tapestry of life that covers the planet Earth.
