Introduction to Aerodynamics and
Introduction to FoilSim Workshop
This Distance Learning Conference can be viewed with Picture-Tel, V-Tel or CLI equipment.

January 14 -- 2:30-5:00 p.m. EST
February 10 -- 2:30-5:00 p.m. EST
March 10 -- 2:30-5:00 p.m. EST
April 13 -- 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 Site.

NASA Summer School for High-Performance Computational Earth and Space Sciences
July 12-30
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Greenbelt, Md.

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.

Applications received before Feb. 12, 1999, will receive full consideration.
