OpenSciEd classroom materials are an open education resource and therefore free to download, copy, use, and/or modify. Because it is our desire to lower barriers for all educators to use OpenSciEd, we have also partnered with kit and print providers who sell attractively priced, quality-assured OpenSciEd classroom materials.
