CREST Computing Program Teaches Skills to High School Students

June 25, 2019

This summer, the CCBM is giving the opportunity for high school students to become trained in Computation and Scientific Modeling. The 1st Annual CREST Science and Computing Research Summer Program invites high school students to register for the program to gain research experience at UC Merced!



CREST Science and Computing Research Summer Program

July 1-5, 2019 (not July 4), 9:00 am - 4:00 pm M-F

Students who have completed grades 8-12; Up to 24 students

Location: UC Merced

In this session, participants will engage in computer-driven science research-oriented activities in a group setting, led by faculty and scientists in the National Science Foundation-funded CREST center at UC Merced, which focuses on engineering, biological science, physics, chemistry and computational science. Hands-on research-based activities, projects, lectures, interactions with scientists and engineers and lab tours will enable students to get a better understanding of what it is like to do science research and what it is like to be a scientist. Through these activities, students will get a glimpse into the importance of research computing that connects all aspects of scientific research.
