What is FOSS?
FOSS gives students the opportunity to think and act like scientists and engineers. UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science developed FOSS® Next Generation™ for DC to honor the letter and spirit of NGSS. FOSS presents science the way students learn it, as they explore phenomena firsthand on a journey toward mastering the three dimensions of the Framework. It’s why FOSS is proven to measurably improve test scores in districts across the country. Why FOSS?
