Computer Graphics and the Continuum of Computational Science Education

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
New Hampshire 1

Visualization of scientific processes using computer graphics is fundamental for communicating scientific results and engaging a wide audience in computational sciences. This minisymposium starts with a novel graphics curriculum aimed at preparing computational science students. We follow with presentations from the continuum of computational science education, from K-12 to undergraduate to graduate, with their varying audiences united through the need to visualize the results. We feel this provides a coordinated, interrelated approach for the growing community of computational science that appropriately addresses the various levels of its appeal.
