This module presents some of the general ideas behind and basics principles of high-performance computing (HPC) as performed on a supercomputer. These concepts should remain valid even as the technical specification of the latest machines continually change. Although this material is aimed at HPC supercomputers, if history be a guide, present HPC hardware and software become desktop machines in less than a decade.

Members of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have designed a suite of atmospheric science learning modules for middle school students. The curriculum, which implements a flipped-classroom model, is cross-referenced with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. It introduces students to topics such as temperature, pressure, severe weather safety, climate change, and air pollution through short instructional videos and critical thinking activities. A goal of this project is to provide middle school science educators with resources to teach while fostering early development of math and science literacy. The work is funded by a National Science Foundation CAREER award. For a complete list of learning modules and to learn more about the curriculum, visit https://www.atmos.illinois.edu/~nriemer/education.html

This website contains a series of hands-on problem-based active learning nanotechnology modules that were developed to be incorporated within undergraduate civil and environmental engineering courses. These activities have been developed using a pedagogical approach called Environments for Fostering Effective Critical Thinking (EFFECTs). This approach uses student-centered learning strategies to promote deep learning, enhance conceptual understanding, and stimulate growth in critical thinking skills. Details associated with this pedagogical approach are also included on this website.
