Reflect on the Science you learned in school. What is similar / different in computational science? Give an example of an experiment you might conduct in computational science that would not be possible in a traditional science lab.
The science I learned in k-12 school was some hands on and a lot of paper/pencil and reading about the experiments. One of the main differences I see based on the example given in the video is that experiments using computational science would allow students to use real data (and a lot of it) to discover information and interpret current data. New experiments using this data may be possible, but at least using current data would allow students (and me!) to use information more relevant to current times. Also, using a large amount of data to see trends is much more helpful than traditional labs that allow students to collect 3-5 data points (often which skews their results making them irrelevant and potentially distracting from the point of the lab).
An experiment that we could do using computational data would be to measure forces on different systems or determine friction coefficients. Likewise, seeing stopping times/distances, and stress/strain on bridges or other structures would be much easier using computational science.
