The Smart Way to Manage Your Science Kits!
Research shows that inquiry-based investigation is the most effective way to teach science. The Delta Science Resource ServiceSM gives teachers a jumpstart on engaging students in exciting investigations in their classrooms.
This valuable service provides scheduling, refurbishment, delivery and pickup of teacher-ready kits. Your Full Option Science System™ (FOSS®) K-6 and Delta Science Modules™ (DSM) kits arrive at your school according to a planned curriculum schedule and rotation. Required living materials are shipped to arrive based upon a pre-arranged schedule. In order to save you time, you’ll receive teacher-ready kits that are set to begin using in the classroom. Many teacher-prepped materials, such as stripped wires, are already prepared; many teacher-supplied items, such as empty soda bottles, are already included.
Here’s how it works:
- Needs Assessment: An experienced Delta Education professional starts by working with you to understand your curriculum needs. Together, you develop the most effective kit rotation strategy for your school or district.
- Kit Rotation Schedule: We’ll create your optimal schedule with every detail taken care of, including email alerts to notify you of scheduled kit delivery and pick-up dates, and automatic shipment of living materials.
- Pickup and Delivery: When a teacher has completed the investigations in a kit, they simply return the kit to a predetermined location. The kit and living materials for the next unit will be shipped based on the predetermined schedule already in place. The service is completely integrated with Delta Education’s state-of-the-art facilities and inventory system to ensure timely rotation and availability of components.
