ADVANCED SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING COURSE AT BNL (FOR STUDENTS)  Free, but must complete aptitude test and have background in Scientific Computing.  Designed for those high school students already familiar with computer programming, this two-week hands-on course will teach participants how to perform very complex scientific data analysis by writing custom code to perform complex simulations, enable multi-dimensional data visualization, and perform statistical analysis of very large data sets. (Please note: Each prospective student will have to successfully complete a pre-test to validate their programming skills and mathematical competencies. It is required that students have completed courses in Algebra and Trigonometry. Pre-Calculus is recommended.)
