This exercise was designed for environmental professionals and educators by scientists and instructional design educators at the Shodor Education Foundation, Inc., in cooperation with the North Carolina Supercomputing Center and the North Carolina Industrial Extension Service (North Carolina State University). This project is being conducted under EPA Cooperative Agreement CR 822080 awarded to the Industrial Extension Service, North Carolina State University, with the North Carolina Supercomputing Center as the main technical partner. It represents the first step in a process of determining and recommending a comprehensive modeling curriculum which could be implemented by EPA through the Air Pollution Training Institute, by state and local agencies, and by universities.
