3 decades of refinement went into this moment of discovery.
FOSS has been classroom-tested and refined for 30 years by the Lawrence Hall of Science. It’s why today’s FOSS brings together every essential student and teacher component for world-class science instruction, right in the package and included in the price.
English Language Arts Connections
FOSS connects science to English through readings, Science Notebook writings, and teacher support for ELLs.
Making Sense of Phenomena
Students step away from their screens and investigate scientific phenomena with their own hands.
FOSS throws open the classroom door and takes students outdoors, raising their awareness of the natural world.
Formative and Benchmark Assessments
Based on the NSF-supported ASK project, FOSS assessments foster a growth mindset.
FOSS can help you build a customized plan for your district, provide experienced consultants for workshops, and furnish ongoing support.

“FOSS has long offered remarkably rich curricula. Its integration of well-designed hands-on and textual learning is unparalleled, and cross disciplinary connections are laid out in detail. Student exercises and assessments are thoughtfully constructed, and topical presentations encourage model making, revisions, and further exploration.”
