FOSS is an elementary school science program developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science with support from the National Science Foundation. FOSS program materials are designed to meet the challenge of providing meaningful science education for all students in diverse American classrooms and to prepare them for life in the 21st century. FOSS incorporates time-honored methodologies such as hands-on inquiry and interdisciplinary projects with contemporary methodologies such as multisensory observation and collaborative learning groups. Development of the FOSS program was guided by recent advances in the understanding of how youngsters think and learn. FOSS is a project of the Center for Multisensory Learning.
