Sorry, I was unable to get back to proofread/edit my reply. But in my attempt, I re-read your post and had an idea for your Apologia/with microscope.
You might want to try to find someone who uses a microscope in their work to come introduce your kids to the microsope and talk about how it is used in their work.
This could be a variety of jobs.I am a Medical Technologist and I have introduced a number of students to the microscrope. Connecticut Valley Biological Supply company has many items that may enhance your biology course. I like to use their Protozoan demoslides(live protozoa).
Forensics seems to be a popular topic of study with students of this age.

Additional ideas: Getting together with your friends, having them share about their careers once a week or every other week.
Utilize any parent experts to give presentations in their area of expertise that go along with what you are studying.
The kids get to plan a themed party around something after they have studied it. I'm sure other homeschoolers would enjoy it.
Let them find interactive websites pertaining to the subject (Biology, chemistry, etc.) The American Chemical Society has an interesting magazine for highschool called ChemMatters. You can check out some of the past issues on their website. They may find out they like Chemistry and didn't know it!
If you would like other ideas, let me know in what areas. But for now, since I don't know if this is helpful, I will sign off.
Hope you can glean at least one idea.
I will try again to put the link in the right place for the park volunteer opportunities.
