In addition to offering multimedia ways to learn how some innovations have occurred, it also provides three areas - Learning Space, Career Pathway, and Multimedia. Learning Space presents articles from Grolier Online and Science World. Career Pathway walks students through steps to help them identify careers in the science and math fields which might interest them, as well as showing them the steps they'll need to take to get to those careers. The Multimedia section presents sites from the American Museum of Natural History, Tom Snyder Productions, and the Museum of Science to expand students' knowledge and interest. In addition, there are lists of resources from each state, and lesson plans.
