Undergraduate Minor Project

OSC, Capital University, and OLN are leading a National Science Foundation-sponsored project to develop an undergraduate minor in computational science. The two-year student program improves and standardizes undergraduate computational sciences course curriculum at Ohio’s two- and four-year institutions. The $250,000 is implemented in partnership with Columbus State Community College, Sinclair Community College, Kent State University, The Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, Central State University, Wittenberg University, and Wright State University.

Associate Degree Project

OSC, Owens Community College, Sinclair Community College, and Stark State College are partnering to develop an associate degree program in computational science. The $695,000 NSF-funded project will develop programs that constitute the middle two years of an articulation from the high schools to the community colleges and four-year colleges and universities, including courses and materials, a model articulation agreement from high school through baccalaureate programs, professional development for faculty and a model for a shared program that can be replicated nationally.

Ohio Project Lead the Way (PLTW)

The Ohio PLTW has developed a four-year sequence of courses. When combined with college preparatory mathematics and science courses in high school, these courses will introduce students to the scope, rigor and discipline of engineering and engineering technology prior to entering college. OSC and the Regents are working with the Ohio PLTW to develop a new course in computational science.

Ohio Computational Science Lecture Series

This lecture series is held at various locations around the state and is carried live via Internet H.323 video and streaming video. OSC welcomes the participation of faculty, students and businesses from around the state that are interested in computational modeling and its application in research, education, and industry.
