Introduction to Computational Thinking, Computational Biology: NCSI Summer Tutorial Workshops



The Workshops still listed below are still open!
Please do not hesitate as closing dates are rapidly approaching.
Please forward this to your colleagues and consider attending yourself as a refresher or to get extra help on your modeling and simulation projects.

Free 2011 Summer Tutorial Workshops

  • Introduction to Computational Thinking
    • Modeling and Simulation Across the Curriculum (June 19-25, July 10-16)
    • Preparing In-service and Pre-service Educators for Comp Think (July 24-30)
    • Computational Thinking from a Parallel Perspective (July 31-Aug 6)
  • Computational Biology for Biology Educators (June 12-18, June 26-July 2)

(You or your institution pay your travel costs to get to and from the workshop institution.)

These workshops are being sponsored by the National Computational Science Institute (NCSI) with support from TeraGrid, Blue Waters, the SC 2011 conference's Education Program, and in some cases other organizations as well.

Your week will be filled with expert-led computational explorations, hands-on practice, collaborative work, and curriculum development for your classroom.

Details

The following are 2011's *FREE* weeklong summer tutorial workshops:

  • Introduction to Computational Thinking
    • Modeling and Simulation Across the Curriculum
      • June 19 - 25, Wayne State College, Wayne NE
      • July 10 - 16, Texas State Technical College, Waco TX
    • Preparing In-service and Pre-service Educators for Computational Thinking
      • July 24 - 30, Oregon State University, Covallis OR
    • Computational Thinking from a Parallel Perspective
      • July 31 - Aug 6, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge LA
  • Computational Biology for Biology Educators
    • June 12 - 18, Lafayette College, Easton PA
    • June 26 - July 2, Calvin College, Grand Rapids MI

During these tutorial workshops you will explore not only how to do computational science and high performance computing, but also how to teach these topics, and how to use computational methods in your teaching.

The tutorial workshops will be *FREE* (except you have to pay your own transportation costs to and from the host site), and we'll feed you and house you at no charge.

Each tutorial workshops will require a $150 FULLY REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT. (To get your refund, you'll need to attend the workshop EVERY SINGLE DAY, and submit the daily surveys EVERY SINGLE DAY, plus the pre-survey and the post-survey.) Details can be found on the NCSI policies webpage.
