“Klaus Timmerhaus exemplified the idea of a scholar—a person who is passionate about his students, his field of study, and his university,” said CU President Bruce Benson. “His generous contributions will benefit all three of these, and are a fitting legacy for a man who has been such an important part of the life of our university.”
Klaus is survived by his second wife, Jan; daughter Carol; sister Gudren; and grandchildren Kristina and Matthew. He was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Jean, as well as his mother, father, and sister Ingy.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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