Selected "NSES/2061 Benchmarks" met by the video, hands-on and online resources:
Program 7

3.2.4 Knows that telescopes magnify distant objects in the sky (e.g., the Moon, planets) and dramatically increase the number of stars we can see
3.3.5 Knows characteristics and movement patterns of asteroids, comets, and meteors
10.2.4 Knows that materials have different states (solid, liquid, gas), and some common materials such as water can be changed from one state to another by heating or cooling (or in this case, by sublimation: ed note.)
11.3.3 Knows how the Sun acts as a major source of energy for changes on the Earth's surface (i.e., the Sun loses energy by emitting light; some of this light is transferred to the Earth in a range of wavelengths including visible light, infrared radiation, and ultraviolet radiation)
12.3.2 Knows ways in which light interacts with matter (e.g., transmission, including refraction; absorption; scattering, including reflection)
12.3.3 Knows that only a narrow range of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation can be seen by the human eye; differences of wavelength within that range of visible light are perceived as differences in color
14.3.2 Knows that all scientific ideas are tentative and subject to change and improvement in principle, but for most core ideas in science, there is much experimental and observational confirmation
