We describe the evolution and current status of the Computational Science program at Clemson. Faculty interest generated by the acquisition of a distributed memory machine in 1986 led to the formation of a computational science working group. Various activities of the group members contributed to the formulation of certain fundamental principles of our view(More)
One of the foremost challenges in high performance computing (HPC) is promoting involvement of historically underrepresented undergraduate students. The Blue Waters Undergraduate Petascale Education Program, funded by the National Science Foundation Office of CyberInfrastructure, has been facing this challenge head-on while supporting undergraduate(More)
Students and faculty alike at all education levels are clearly spending much more of their time interacting with computing and communication tools than with each other. Is this good? Are all uses of computational technology in education helpful, and if not, how does one separate the benefits from the burdens? We will explore how computing enables multiple(More)
The Blue Waters Student Internship Program (BWSIP), a year-long program funded for three years by the National Science Foundation, motivates and trains the next generation of supercomputing researchers. A community engagement partnership of the Blue Waters Petascale Computing Facility at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and Shodor,(More)
Computational Science is a fast-growing interdisciplinary field that is at the intersection of the sciences, computer science, and mathematics. Much scientific investigation now involves computing as well as theory and experiment. Computing can often stimulate the insight and understanding that theory and experiment alone cannot achieve. There is a critical(More)
