Promoting the Computational Science Initiative (ProCSI)


A free six day residential program will be held July 19-24, 2015 on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison to promote a multidisciplinary Computational Science Initiative (ProCSI, pronounced “proxy”). Organized by the members of the Simulation-Based Engineering Lab, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Applied Computing Center, ProCSI introduces high-school students to the Computational Science discipline. Participants will be shown how the fundamental building blocks they are currently learning in high-school math, physics, and science classes are connected to advanced concepts in computer science and engineering that they may encounter at the University as a student or in the everyday world around them. This is accomplished through a hands-on active learning process, where activities include Computer Aided Design of physical objects, problem solving activities using computer simulation software, and tours of engineering laboratories where cutting-edge research takes place. ProCSI aims to motivate students by giving them a basic understanding of how computers are used today to lead to tomorrow’s discoveries and innovations in science and engineering.
