Top image: Teachers at a FOSS institute tackle the concentration puzzle from the Mixtures and Solutions Module.

Recognize anyone? What they are up to? The photo collage on these pages includes just some of the many people who have contributed to the success of FOSS over the past ten years. Some have participated in development, others in training, and others in implementing FOSS in their classrooms. To all, whether captured in these photos or not, many, many thanks!
