 SECANT (Science Education in Computational Thinking) is a community building project funded through the NSF CPATH (Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education) program. The goal of SECANT is to bring together computer scientists and natural scientists who recognize that computing has become indispensable to scientific inquiry and is set to permeate science in a transformative manner.  The workshop will address how to make computational thinking a central part of an undergraduate science education through the development of new courses focused on the computational understanding relevant to tomorrow’s scientist. Purdue’s College of Science is currently developing a course  that introduces science majors to computational thinking via problem driven programming concepts, data and data management concepts, simulation, and visual interaction.  SECANT (Science Education in Computational Thinking) is a community building project funded through the NSF CPATH (Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education) program.
