system, perhaps developed by a different vendor, to dispense freeze-point depressants the instant that snow or icing conditions are detected on the road surface. Likewise, with sensors deployed according to agreed-upon standards in a coherent network over one or more jurisdictions, more sophisticated mesoscale modeling solutions could be pursued. Indeed, ITS provides a framework with which to extend road weather and other services in a fully integrated fashion across the nation, and eventually, throughout North America.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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