This session will provide example materials for basic computational science education, modeling, and computational thinking. Several different tools that can be used to introduce modeling concepts will be demonstrated along with sources of models and instructional modules that can be inserted into a wide range of courses. The session will review model computational science undergraduate programs and facilitate discussions of the paths to curriculum changes.

12:30PM XSEDE New User Training
An introduction to XSEDE User Portal will be provided in this session. An overview of capabilities accessible through the portal will be demonstrated in an interactive session, with the participants able to follow along with their own portal account. Additionally, the basics of XSEDE resource architecture, covering compute, storage, and environment management, will be presented, which will motivate an introductory job submission tutorial component. Finally, the participants will be able to learn the basics of file transfer with Globus Online. While there are no labs associated with this session, participants will be able to follow along with the instructor to gain experience and familiarity with the XSEDE environment.
