NIST's team for generating a proposal for a mathematics-based manufacturing initiative should ascertain (1) whether NIST has a qualified professional who is interested in becoming an in-house champion for mathematics-based manufacturing, (2) whether NIST would establish a competence building project in mathematics-based manufacturing, (3) the pros and cons of using design and construction of buildings and structures, and (4) the feasibility and desirability of alerting entrepreneurs to possible support from NIST's Advanced Technology Program in developing precommercial mathematics-based manufacturing technologies.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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