Recommendation 4-9: High-capacity, easily cleanable, inexpensive, robust devices with submicrometer cutpoints and with the ability to transmit or collect (cyclone) particles as large as 30 μm AD should be developed. Use of new materials and fabrication techniques should be considered.
Finding 4-10: An aerosol concentrator can require the expenditure of considerable power.
Recommendation 4-10: The development of more efficient blowers and concentrators should be supported.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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.
