Organization: UNC Pembroke

Abstract (up to 200 words):
The Shodor Foundation is a non-profit research and education organization dedicated to the advancement of science and math education, specifically through the use of modeling and simulation technologies. Special emphasis is placed on enabling authentic science and mathematics explorations at all educational levels, developing numerical models and simulations integrated with the curriculum, professional development, and network access to support their use in learner-centered environments. With support from the National Science Foundation and others, Shodor has established the National Computational Science Institute (NCSI). After a brief presentation that defines computational science, describes the NCSI program, and gives some examples of how computational science can be used in the classroom, a hands-on workshop using STELLA software will give the participants an opportunity to build and experiment with their own computational models.
