Blue Sow Bug When you need to replace consumable items or order live organisms for FOSS or Amplify, the Science Material Center (SMC) is here to help.  The link below will guide you step-by-step through log-in and order placement instructions. 

Please NOTE:

1) Materials will only be delivered to school sites.  I cannot deliver to residences.

2) It is wisest to order replenishment immediately after completing a module.  Failing that, please see the following table for your order placement deadlines:

For Grade Level Teams:

For Units beginning in:

The easiest way to meet these deadlines is to place the replenishment order as soon as the unit is completed.

3) Beat the rush for live specimens by ordering as far in advance as you can (seriously, 4 weeks ahead is probably too late).  September-October and March-May fill up fast, meaning optimum dates will be gone if you wait.

4) The potential for returning to full virtual learning requires that we be flexible with live specimens orders.  If our teaching model changes, I will work with you to determine options.

If you have any questions, difficulties ordering, comments, or suggestions, please contact John Everett at the SMC (e-mail is best). Contact Info:  John Everett, Science Materials Specialist, 204-3038
