Welcome to the SC08 K-12 Classroom Applications page!

This page is dedicated to spreading awareness of the range of opportunities to employ computational science resources in K-12 classrooms. Place a link and very short description under one or more of the headings listed, or add a new heading if appropriate. Clear examples of how applications are actually used in particular curricular contexts are much more helpful than just a list of software. (But please remember to link like it's your job:)
