This workshop aims to expose participants to and inspire them with new techniques, teaching materials, and applications to use computational models in the undergraduate curriculum. By bringing faculty and teachers from different disciplines together so that they can learn how to incorporate computational models into their classrooms and research projects, it will advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education. We desire to have participants from a broad range of disciplines, including computer science, mathematics, and the physical and life sciences.

Jun 15 - Jun 18
The workshop consists of interactive explorations and hands-on exercises from Monday morning through Wednesday afternoon. The content will explore new techniques, teaching materials, and applications using computational models in the undergraduate curriculum, but also adaptable for secondary teachers. The workshop goal is to form collaborations between faculty and teachers from different disciplines so that they can learn to incorporate computational models into classroom and research projects to advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education, mathematics, and physical, life and social sciences. Instructors also will be available for consultation on Thursday for individual help on building specific models and for working on lesson plans ideas and implementations.
