Computational science presents some wild opportunities for learning! I loved the way they showed it as a conglomerate of computer science, lab science and math. It makes it pretty clear that the stuff I learned in Science and Math are valuable in the world of computational science
Yesterday, we had about 100 junior high/high school girls with engineers at a seminar. The surveyors were showing them how they gathered the data for the designers to use on projects and it employed very similar scanning techniques. The scans they then used with the GIS system were accurate to 3mm for a 400m scan. If we can integrate the computer science into our science and math classes, the kids we teach will really have a leg up in the real world of today.
