The FOSS Project at the Lawrence Hall of Science, in cooperation with Delta Education, invites you and your science leadership team to experience the Next Generation of Active Learning by attending one of the FOSS K-5 Next Generation Summer Institute for New Users sessions.

In order to accommodate your schedule, we are offering this institute at two different times.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 – Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Thursday, June 29, 2017 – Friday, June 30, 2017

Topics of discussion will include:
• How FOSS addresses the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
• Effective implementation strategies for new users and those using previous editions
• Student engagement in scientific and engineering practices through first-hand investigations
• Overview of the new and revised components

Who should attend?
The institute is designed for administrators, science curriculum coordinators, lead elementary teachers, and professional developers interested in starting to implement FOSS Next Generation in the 2017-18 school year. Teams of 2-4 people from schools and districts are encouraged to register and will receive priority.


 $175 The cost to attend is $175 for each session. Sessions 1 and 2 are identical, so please register for only one of the two sessions. Registration is limited to 30 participants.
