Modeling & Simulation
Explore the Modeling and Simulation Survey Course designed jointly by educators and industry. Teachers and students learn about this high school course for college/career readiness in STEM fields like engineering, computer graphics, gaming, and IT.
Teachers can explore the Modeling and Simulation Survey Course, designed by educators and industry to give students hands-on exploration of future STEM careers such as engineering, architectural design, computer gaming, and computer programming.
Students are inspired to learn to model and simulate virtual scenarios to solve real-world problems in a self-paced collaborative environment.The video features students who have taken the course as an elective in grades 10-12.
Students learn about exciting career opportunities in this rapidly growing STEM field, modeling and simulation, from interviews with a database engineer, a software developer, an analyst, and college student interns.
Introduce students to nodes and graph theory and their use in operations research. Show how Dijkstra’s Algorithm can be used to find the shortest or quickest route between nodes in a network.
