Modern science relies heavily on computers, and programming ability is moving from a useful skill to an indispensable prerequisite for scientific research.  Both science and computer science classes can take advantage of this connection.  This session explores using science to teach computing and vice versa, using scientific concepts such as kinematics, reaction rates, and genetics with computing concepts such as iteration, object orientation, and machine learning.  Please bring a computer.  Programming proficiency is not required.
