Education



Registration is Open:



Registrations are open for the 2007 summer workshops and for the SC07 Education Program to be held in Reno. To register for any of these events please link to www.computationalscience.org

Audience:



All of the events described below are open to undergraduate faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and high school teachers.

SC07 Education Program:



The SC07 Education Program will be held November 10-13, in Reno, Nevada. Participants will be engaged in hands-on activities to engage them in applying computational science, grid computing and high performance computing resources in education. People that have attended the summer workshops described below, are encouraged to attend to continue to expand their knowledge and skills. The program will include activities that address Learning and Physical Challenges in Education. Travel, housing and meals are provided for all participants selected to attend the program in Reno. SC07 is the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.

2007 Summer Workshops:



There are eleven week-long, hands-on, summer workshops scheduled on campuses across the country to address the use of computational science and cyberinfrastructure in education. Housing, meals, and materials for participants are provided. Travel is the responsibility of the participants. The summer workshops include:

    Nominations Being Accepted for Faculty, Teachers and Students Awards: The SC07 Education Program has an open call for nominations to recognize undergraduate faculty, K-12 educators, as well as high school, undergraduate and graduate students that are making significant strides in applying computational resources for scientific discovery.

    Register Now for the On-Site Student Competition:



    There will be an on-site student competition at the SC07 conference for high school, undergraduate and graduate students. Applications are now being accepted.

    Year-Long Program of Engagement:



    The SC07 Education Program is a year-long program that works with undergraduate faculty, administrators, college students, and collaborating high school teachers. The purpose of the Education Program is to integrate computational science, high performance computing and communications technologies highlighted through the SC Conference into the preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and teachers. The year-long program includes regionally distributed week-long summer workshops, as well as a four-day program of hands-on activities during the SC07 Conference on Saturday through Tuesday.

    The Learning & Physical Challenges Education Program



    Continuing a new initiative for SC07, is the Learning & Physical Challenges Education Program (LPCE). This program is to empower grades 7-16 faculty, educators, special education professionals, and students with disabilities an opportunity to apply computational science across a variety of content areas in the classrooms.

    Sponsors:



    The events are funded by a number of sources including the SC07 Education Program, the National Science Foundation, the National Computational Science Institute, the Mathematical Association of Amercia, The Ralph Regula School of Computational Science at OSC, TeraGrid, the University of California Humanities Research Institute, and other sources.
