This educational resource is part of a project to support formal and non-formal agricultural educators in integrating cyberbiosecurity topics and research-based strategies for engaging middle-school aged girls in STEM into their educational programs. Cyberbiosecurity is an emerging field that focuses on creating security measures for digital aspects of our food and agriculture systems, creating a structure and opportunity for a safe food system that can meet the large needs of a growing population and world.In this project, we partnered with scientists, middle school teachers, and Extension Agents to develop educational resources to help middle-school aged youth learn about the opportunities that exist in cyberbiosecurity. Our long-term aim is to use this novel disciplinary space to spark STEM career interest of middle school-aged youth in rural communities, with an emphasis on girls, to build new pipelines into cyberbiosecurity careers.

 High School students are online all the time developing appropriate and inappropriate relationships. Because of their online experiences, they may feel well-equipped to recognize a bad situation and know how to get out of it. However, many times teenagers are drawn into a seemingly harmless conversation that will lead them to a dangerous offline encounter that they cannot escape.This lesson will provide strategies to teens to help them identify relationships that are inappropriate, how to avoid them, and how to get out of those relationships as soon as possible.

Out of My Mind is a chapter book that I read aloud to my upper elementary students. It is about a girl named Melody that has an amazing memory. She is extremely bright, but is unable to communicate verbally. She was born with cerebral palsy which affected her speech and her ability to move and function without the use of a wheelchair and communication board. She is very limited in what she can express and do, and for that reason, people treat her as if she is not smart or capable of learning.
