Event description
Did you know you can use computational modeling to simulate different scenarios of what might happen in the future?

About this event

Computational modeling with Dr. Julie Quinn, Assistant Professor in Engineering Systems and Environment at UVA will take you behind-the-scenes of decision-making under climate change uncertainty. Almost every decision you make is under uncertainty. Will I need a rain jacket in the afternoon? Will they say yes if I ask them to the movies? Is 1 hour enough time to finish this assignment? Oftentimes, we can use computational modeling to simulate different scenarios of what might happen in the future to inform what decisions are best on average, or what decisions minimize the worst case outcome.

The Tech-Girls Online Workshop series is geared toward girls in 5th through 8th grade. The idea is to offer fun, hands-on computer science activities and access to female role models in computing careers providing opportunities for adolescent girls to understand what they can do with CS and to aspire to CS-related careers. We are excited to be part of a study through the University of Virginia that will help us look at the impact of this program.
