FOSS is not a passive curriculum. Instead, it challenges students to actively participate in the world around them and gather evidence to explain real-world phenomena. Lessons include investigation experiences that build an understanding of science and engineering concepts and practices. Concrete texts and background are used for further exploration of STEM concepts through reading, writing, integrated technology, and outdoor exploration. Students don’t simply ask “Why?” They ask “What’s next?”

Just as the world of science constantly changes, FOSS also evolves. Continuously improved to reflect the latest approaches, FOSS products transform every student into a scientist by:

“My students love FOSS! They love the hands-on activities, and I love seeing them 100% engaged from the highest-level students to the lower-level students. (And,) teachers are more engaged. They love how everything is right there for each lesson.”
