activities supported by NSF, which are much more costly and involve many more people. It sounds as if the COST program2 of the European Community is what has just been described. The COST program has as its entire purpose the communication and integration aspects, and the funds go only for that. It is assumed that all of the research involved in these programs is paid for from other sources. So, the concept is quite a bit different from the STCs.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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