Full Option Science System
Developed at the University of California-Berkley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, Full Option Science System (FOSS) is an inquiry-based science curriculum designed specifically for K- 8 students. FOSS modules provide teachers and students continued access to best practices in scientific literacy, instructional efficiency and systematic reform. In addition, FOSS provides 26 separate modules for grades K-6 with a wide array of support materials, classroom resources, and network contacts to help teachers optimize the curriculum and their students’ potential.
The inquiry-based approach FOSS employs is well-aligned with the other components of the learning program and can be integrated into different subjects when appropriate. FOSS also provides support in catering its curricular model to specific state standards and learning objectives.
