Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in an FCI program?

When we come to a school for an FCI program, we will visit up to four second grade classrooms for an identical 45-minute/one-hour program. Our FCI program focuses on how plants and animals have different structures and behaviors that serve specific functions: food, shelter, protection, and more.
