* Alternately, we could do something with engineering. Develop structual models, and see what sort of crazy structures you could make that would stand on their own. There's already some rudimentary stuff to do this with, such as Bridgebuilder, but if we could possibly do something more complicated, I think that would be awesome.

Environmental / ecosystem monitoring. temperature levels / air quality. modelling specific regions vs global modelling

Socioeconomic modelling. what happens with changes in legislation eg taxes, min wage. model of population behavior. (agent)

Chemical modeling - Using resources to model molecules and looking at the kind of molecule a certain combination of atoms make. Goes into using this kind of modeling to make new drugs. Would include a lecture that harks back to an (most likely) earlier lecture about how modeling is the third leg and then go into how drug companies have saved billions of dollars by being able to get through the early phases of drug development with just models. Would have a lab to come up with a feasible possibility for a new type of drug, and what it would/could possibly treat. Need to look into the availability of a computational chem server, as it might not be for use for beyond high school.

Pros:

Cons:

Comments:


Possibly a more structured/simpler version of the parachute lab done in CS290. Obviously having them perform the parachute drops and such would not be feasible but we could have them start out with the videos and some figures and they would do the netlogo aspect of the lab for themselves. (Different sized parachutes attached to different weights - dropped them and measured them, and then tried to model it and decide how fast different weights should drop with different parachutes.)

Wikipedia tells it all about the aerodynamics, one should know. Some ideas about modeling could be obtained.

At the lower part of the site - it talks about visualizing the results and the whole simulation of the wind tunnel. Interesting.

This link provides multiple links (e.g. http://www.ansys.com/products/cfx.asp Ansys - fluid dynamics) of the software which might be used for modeling such situations described. Honestly, didn't have bandwidth / speed to check the links; and not even to read the wikipedia that I posted; but information is accurate.
