future holds further steps forward from the original milestone laid by this pioneering agenda, and the essence of mutually beneficial scientific cooperation can engender an even better future.
I trust that this workshop will be the beginning of a very successful endeavor toward achieving our goals of understanding through science.
Of one Essence is the Human Race
Thusly has Creation put the Base,
One Limb impacted is sufficient,
For all Others to feel the Mace.1

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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