Computer Simulations for Scientists and Engineers

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)

Grades: 9-11

Time Slot: Mid-morning
• 12:00pm – 1:45pm Eastern Time

Are you interested in learning the mysteries of the physical world? Are you excited by the opportunity to use that understanding to engineer new technologies and solve humanity's biggest problems? In recent years, computer simulations have become an essential tool in this quest. In this course, we will use simulations to answer fundamental questions in physics, aerospace engineering, biology, mechanical engineering, and earth science that have captivated human imagination for centuries. With the power of modern computers, you will learn how to send space shuttles to mars, terraform other planets, manage wildlife habitats, and much more. This course starts with the basics of computer programming and science, so students of all backgrounds are welcome to experience the joy of using computer simulations as scientists and engineers.


PhD student Department of Chemical Engineering - Yale University

Brian graduated from Wake Forest University with a B.S. in physics in the spring of 2015. He was drawn to physics, because his interest in using scientific concepts to solve technical problems for real-world applications. During his time as an undergraduate student, Brian took part in research projects using computer simulations to discover new materials and predict their properties. After graduation, Brian worked as a researcher in the pharmaceutical industry. With the intention of furthering the ability to contribute to technological advancements, Brian returned to school as a chemical engineering PhD student at Yale University in the fall of 2018 where he intends to focus on developing water filtration techniques to improve accessibility to clean drinking water.
