What is Computational Science?

This week on STEM Spots, Dr. Darlena Jones, Director of Assessment and Research for the Association of Institutional Research has some suggestions.  The program starts with a discussion of what computational science is and why modeling of real-world systems is important from a scientific viewpoint.  It is a growing area of science where people interested in STEM subjects are needed.  The lack of math skills can scare some individuals away.  Don’t let that happen to you!  There are a number of support programs and resources available from Missouri State University in general and specifically within the College of Natural and Applied Sciences and its departments.  They are available to those individuals just entering at the beginning of their academic program to those wanting to come back for a second career.
