The 54 projects on view, created by 87 students altogether, were submitted from 12 high schools around the state (see participant list, below). Students may enter one of two categories: computational science, where students use computers to solve science problems, or information technology, such as applications for the World Wide Web.
After viewing the projects from 9:40 a.m. to noon, visitors may enjoy a box lunch for sale in the NCAR cafeteria and share the excitement of the awards ceremony from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. Keynote speaker Gary Johnson, a professor of Computer Science at George Mason University, will discuss "Disaster Modeling and Mitigation: A New Direction for Computational Science." In addition, CSU graduate students Kumi Suzuki and Angela Earnhart will talk about "Two-Phase Groundwater Flow" and "Visualization of the Multigrid Method" and show videos of their work.
NCAR's Mesa Laboratory is located at the west end of Table Mesa Drive in south Boulder. From Denver, take the first Boulder exit off U.S. 36 West (CU Stadium/
Foothills Parkway) to Table Mesa Drive. Turn left at the light onto Table Mesa Drive and go 3.5 miles west to the lab. (See map.)
