Projects

Cybereducation accomplishes its goals through its many projects. These projects involve working directly with educators and students to enrich teaching and learning through computational science, with the ultimate goal being to prepare for the future of science and mathematics. Below are current projects and links to information about previous projects.

BLUE WATERS

The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) is a multi-state, multi-institutional organization that brings together faculty, administrators, staff and students at research universities and institutions in the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC). The goal is to prepare the current and next generation of scientists and engineers to use leading-edge computer systems. The initial focus is on graduate and postgraduate education.

ICLCS

Institute for Chemistry Literacy through Computational Science (ICLCS) - This program is a 5-year National Science Foundation funded Math Science Partnership program to increase the chemistry literacy and chemistry-related pedagogical skills of rural Illinois high school teachers.

Robert Noyce Master Teacher Program - This project focuses on deepening teachers' understanding of computational methods and their role in the chemistry classroom and provides them with support to earn national recognition.

 

GIRLS ENGAGED IN MATH AND SCIENCE

Girls Engaged in Mathematics and Science - GEMS was created as a way to encourage girls to consider mathematics-oriented and science-oriented careers, to gain confidence in doing mathematics and science, and to take advanced level mathematics and science courses in high school.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCES FOR UNDERGRADUATES

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in specific areas of research conducted by NCSA and its partners.

PROJECT PARTNERS

The projects Cybereducation participates in are only possible by forming partnerships with institutions all over the nation. The following are just a few of the partners that makes these projects possible.
