The lessons, activities and data sets are organized into four main modules:
- Earth Science – Explores the availability of water, watersheds, wetlands, water quality, sudden changes from storms and more.
- Life Science – Centers around animal behavior, life cycles and food webs are explored as well as what is required for life and what happens to an ecosystem when invasive species arrive.
- Physical Science – Focuses on things like energy, the principles of sound, electricity and heat, temperature and transfer as they relate to the Great Lakes.
- Social Science – Explores the social aspects of scientific issues, for example making tough natural resource decisions and testing for beach health.
