"As a K-5 science teacher I used FOSS exclusively to provide my students with a wonderful inquiry-based hands-on experience. This experience helped to foster a love of science in all of my students. As a result, my students exceeded the state norms on the Illinois Science Assessment and catapulted me into a new position where I am charged with sharing this passion for hands-on exploratory activities with a portfolio of 36 schools in my network."
