Young people must become technology advocates. More emphasis should be given to high school olympiads, summer computer camps should be expanded, all college students should have Internet access, and work-study programs should be expanded for technology-oriented students.
International programs should be truly collaborative with equitable sharing of the rights to intellectual property generated in cooperative activities, more emphasis on long-term sustainability of programs, and increased portions of Western funding available for expenditures in Russia.
The Russian-American team is gratified that this workshop responds to one of the specific recommendations of the team's report, and we look forward to improving our insights into the future for small innovative firms in the nuclear cities.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
