The 7th Symposium on the Frontiers of Massively Parallel Computation
The IEEE Frontiers 99 Conference provides a major forum for exploring
technical issues that are driving the outer boundaries of effective
high-performance computing. The spectrum of fields includes applications
and algorithms, system software and languages, component technologies
and system architectures.
National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Annual Convention
NSTA is one of the largest educational conferences in the U.S. The
Education Office at NASA Headquarters maintains a partnership with NSTA,
and NASA is usually represented by a number of exhibitors and presenters.
International Technology Education Association (ITEA) 61st Annual
This conference for K-12 technology educators invites those who teach technology such as computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing and other computing skills.
NASA Lewis Research Center (LeRC) Learning Technologies project will
present a session on FoilSim, the simulation package developed to teach
math and science via principles of aeronautics.
National Congress on Aviation and Space Education
This conference is sponsored by the Civil Air Patrol and is attended
by educators from across the United States. LeRC Learning Technologies
project will present a session on the Beginner's Guide to Aerodynamics.
Introduction to Aerodynamics and
January 14 -- 2:30-5:00 p.m. EST
The workshop demonstrates how grade 8-12 math and physics teachers
can use basic aerodynamic theories, incorporated into interactive lessons,
to enhance classroom instruction. The workshop teaches 8-12 grade math
and physics teachers the basic classroom uses of FoilSim, a simulation
that determines the airflow around various shapes of airfoils. The package
contains airfoil and baseball lessons and is free of charge. It can
be downloaded at
Using NASA Educational Internet Sites in the Science Classroom Workshop
January 27 -- 2:30-4:00 p.m. EST
The workshop shows science teachers of grades 3-8 and 9-12 how to use
NASA Internet sites to enhance their curricula. Online interactive projects
and exercises are included, and time is allotted for questions and answers.
NASA Summer School for High-Performance Computational Earth and
This intensive lecture series aims to attract Ph.D. students in the Earth and space science disciplines whose present or future research requires large-scale numerical modeling on massively parallel architectures. Eligibility is normally limited to students who are enrolled in U.S. universities and who have passed their Ph.D. qualifying exams.
