About this project
SimScience is a product of the NSF project Integration of Information Age Networking and Parallel Supercomputer Simulations into University General Science and K-12 Curricula. Specifically, this material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 9523481. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.Project summary
"This project will create an alliance between the Departments of Physics and Engineering at Cornell University, the Departments of Physics and Mechanical, Aerospace and Manufacturing Engineering at Syracuse University, and the Northeast Parallel Architectures Center, to develop interactive multimedia educational modules incorporating advanced scientific simulations. These will be integrated into undergraduate courses, and then into K-12 curricula, to enhance the teaching of general science courses. We will combine leading-edge technologies in high-performance computing and communications (HPCC), a high-speed network serving as a testbed for the National Information Infrastructure (NII), and advanced client/server technologies such as the World Wide Web (WWW), VRML and Java, to produce and deliver these simulations and educational modules."Background and existing work
