Scientific Visualization

Resources for integrating graphics with science and technology education
For teachers of science and technology.


The graphical representation of complex scientific concepts can enhance both science and technology education, but science and technology teachers and their students have not always had the opportunity to work with software and computers to graphically display data. Technology education and engineering graphics teachers and students often use the tools and skills of technical graphics, an area that has much in common with scientific visualization.

Now that scientific visualization programs can be used on the kinds of computers available in schools, it is feasible for teachers to make use of these tools in their science and technology education classes. This new scientific visualization curriculum, developed for North Carolina secondary students, can be taught as a stand-alone course or integrated as modules in existing science and technology education classes.

The curriculum goals include
