NYCDOE Science Initiative

Welcome to Delta Education’s website for the New York City Science Initiative, featuring the Full Option Science System (FOSS). This site is designed to answer your questions about why a kit-based science program will best serve your students’ interests and what Delta’s proposed program comprises.

FOSS’s research base and 25-year history, combined with Delta’s 30 years of experience supplying science educators, characterize an option with a substantial and successful track record in classrooms across the country.

Recommended K-8 Scope and Sequence

FOSS bridges research and practice by providing tools and strategies to engage students and teachers in enduring experiences that lead to deeper understanding of the natural and designed world.
