FOSS (FULL OPTION SCIENCE SYSTEM) is an inquiry
based science program. Younger elementary students engage in science
investigations in which they describe, sort, and organize observations
about objects and organisms. Upper elementary school students construct
more advanced concepts by classifying, testing, experimenting, and
determining cause and effect relationships among objects, organisms, and
systems. All students participate in activities that are multi-sensory,
provide student-to-student interactions and require discourse and
SEPUP (The Science Education for Public Understanding Program)
