Four professors will participate in a unique $480,000 grant program funded by the
National Science Foundation (NSF).
Amil Anderson, associate professor of chemistry, Margaret Goodman, associate
professor of biology, Jim Noyes, professor emeritus of computer science and retired
director of Wittenberg’s computational science program, and John Ritter, professor
of geology, will be constructing computational science modules on topics as far
ranging as genetic diversity within populations to the impact of land use change
on watershed hydrology.
The Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement grant (CCLI), titled
“Development and Dissemination of Computational Science Educational Materials
and Curricula at the Undergraduate Level,” is directed by Terry Lahm and Andrea
Karkowski of Capital University.
The grant program involves 35 authors from 14 colleges and universities in Ohio
and Florida to produce 65 computational science modules over a four-year period.
