The application process for ProCSI-H 2023 is now open!
ProCSI-H (pronounced “proxy-H”, from Promoting the Computational Science Initiative for high schoolers) is a free, summer residential program on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison that seeks to introduce the participants to various research topics and areas that are enabled by computer modeling and simulation. The six-day program is organized and run on a volunteer-basis by the members of the Simulation-Based Engineering Lab, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Applied Computing Center. The high-school students will be shown how the fundamental concepts that they are just learning in high-school math, physics, and science classes are connected to advanced concepts in computer science and engineering. We accomplish this through a hands-on active learning process, where activities include Computer Aided Design of physical objects, problem solving activities using computer simulation software, and tours of engineering laboratories where cutting-edge research takes place. ProCSI-H aims to motivate students by giving them a basic understanding of how computers are used today to enable tomorrow’s discoveries and innovations in science and engineering. We strongly encourage individuals belonging to STEM-underrepresented groups to apply for this opportunity.
