Making Sense of Phenomena with FOSS (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 3

February 21, 2020 - 2:38pm
Students need to experience and make sense of relevant science phenomena that connect to and define standards: a challenging task for teachers. Learn strategies for providing direct experience with phenomena, guiding students to constructing explanations, and developing models to explain everyday phenomena around them using the FOSS program. (Gr K–8)

Science for All Students—Access and Equity (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 3

February 21, 2020 - 2:38pm
Join us for a hands-on experience and discussion as we uncover the assets our diverse students bring and the challenges they face in science and engineering. Receive a toolbox of strategies the FOSS Project developed for educators to support universal access and targeted instruction for our most vulnerable students. (Gr K–8)

Taking Science Outdoors—Help Combat Nature Deficit Disorder (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 3

February 21, 2020 - 2:38pm
Boston Public inspired the FOSS Program to take learning to the schoolyard regularly. Come outdoors to engage in activities exploring real-world phenomena that simultaneously help students begin to form a nature connection. Research, teaching strategies, and tools will be shared that help even non-outdoorsy educators feel inspired to teach outside. (Gr. Pre-K-8)

Wave Properties and Information Technologies (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 3

February 21, 2020 - 2:38pm
Description:Engage in activities using lasers and optical fibers and concepts of refraction and reflection in the FOSS Next Generation Waves Course for middle school. Explore the phenomena that allow information transfer by fiber optic technology and identify connections to the three dimensions of NGSS. (Gr 6–8)

Variables and Design in STEM (FOSS, NSTA), Apr 3

February 21, 2020 - 2:38pm
Description:Experience the new FOSS Next Generation Variables and Design Course for middle grades 5–8. See how the new 4-week STEM course engages students in designing controlled experiments to learn about variables that affect an air-trolley systems before defining an engineering problem that arises from a community problem. (Gr 5–8)
