Why is styles.css not in the css folder?
I'm not sure why the style.css is outside the css folder in which we created? We have the other css files in the folder such as foundation.css and normalize.css why not style.css? Normally I would put all my css files in the folder.

Styles.css is used by WordPress to override styles in the CSS. Wordpress also uses that file to find the name of the theme. It is one of the two min files required in a wordpress theme.
If you do all your work in the css files, then you will not really use that file other than providing WordPress with meta of your theme. If you plan to do sites for clients, then you will be / should be doing child themes and thats when this file will be handy.
