CMIST

Computational Modules in Science Teaching (CMIST) brings innovative science tutorials into secondary school classrooms, focusing on integrative computational biology, physiology, and biophysics. CMIST modules include high quality, realistic 3-D animations produced with cutting-edge simulation and visualization software.
 
CMIST subject material is chosen to highlight critical concepts that are difficult to convey with static textbook images and words; for example, cellular transport of molecules by diffusion and osmosis, or the structure and function of enzymes in cells. Specific modules are introduced in two-hour workshops throughout the school year.
