Education Program

SC2001 offers high school and middle school teachers an opportunity to learn computer modeling and simulation and the application of computational science to the science and mathematics curricula. Through a national competition, a core group of 27 teams with four teachers each has been identified and will participate in an 18-month program that starts at SC2001, continues with monthly videoconference sessions on specific computational science topics through the winter, and includes a two-week Summer Institute in July 2002. The following Education Program sponsors fund these teams:

National Science Foundation
Association of Computing Machinery
IEEE Computer Society
IEEE Foundation
Cisco Systems, Inc.
Compaq Computer Corporation
High Performance Systems
Microsoft Corporation
National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC DataComm
SC2001 Conference
Shodor Education Foundation, Inc.
Wolfram Research, Inc.

At the conclusion of this program, the selected teachers will become leaders in their school systems and region, providing inspiration for a wider adoption of modeling and simulation by classroom teachers. Each team will learn state-of-the-art modeling software tools that will enable them to create new classroom modules that adhere to the national science and mathematics standards. These modules will then be placed in a repository and made publicly available.

Additional teams or individual teachers can participate in the SC2001 Conference along with the selected teams by registering for the SC2001 Education Program and attending the Education Program sessions. Full participation in the hands-on sessions will require additional participants to bring wireless laptops. These participants will learn the fundamentals of the computational science curriculum development tools and will learn how to select appropriate topics for computational science modules for classroom instruction through interaction with modeling experts and practicing computational scientists. Interested teachers can receive additional information by sending email to education@sc2001.org or by visiting the SC2001 website at http://www.sc2001.org.
