Interactive video lesson plan for: News Bummers: Poison Fog, Sad Sperm & SAM

Activity overview:

Hank loves science because it helps us appreciate the world more, but not everything that science does makes him happy - reports of poison fog on the West coast of the United States; dramatic decreases in sperm counts; and a lack of organic molecules found in the soil on Mars (despite misleading hints reported last week) have Hank feeling a little bit Grumpy Cat.
