<p><strong>Welcome to our project, “Resources for Molecular Modeling and Visualization”.</strong> </p> <p>OVERVIEW</p> <p>Increased accessibility and emphasis on the utilization of technology in education provides opportunities to introduce concepts of molecular modeling and visualization to diverse audiences and incorporate concepts in early science education. By harnessing the appeal of the digital revolution, especially in young audiences, our project provides unique and interactive learning opportunities to promote scientific literacy, STEM engagement, and diverse workforce development. We generate computer-based renderings of biomolecules that can be viewed in two and three dimensions. To further enhance the learning process and facilitate the incorporation of concepts of biomolecular structures in the classroom, we also develop resources for teachers at the primary and secondary levels. These resources can be found on the page and are available for all to use.</p> <p>For a more thorough description of this project refer to our paper:</p> <p><a href="https://drive.google.com/a/vt.edu/file/d/17mBpKkEsW70dUi_qsTPZIsCETP2QiiHS/view?usp=sharing" rel="nofollow">Using Immersive Visualization to Engage Students in Hands-On Learning</a></p> <p><a href="https://drive.google.com/a/vt.edu/file/d/1JYK3ns2ghqiMZT9aN3gTxYoh9aIN2XWI/view?usp=sharing" rel="nofollow">Using Immersive Visualization to Engage Students in Hands-On Learning (PEARC Presentation)</a></p> <p>[These resources were generated for the 2018 Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing Conference. The Technical Paper was presented and awarded Best Student Paper!]</p> <hr> <p>MISSION TOWARDS DIVERSITY AND INCLUSIVITY </p> <p>Our groups embrace and encourage diversity in many forms and are committed to inclusivity in the scientific community. We aim to work with diverse audiences and define diversity as individuals of different backgrounds, races, nationalities, genders, sexual orientation, beliefs, religions, socio-economic statuses, and more. The strength and success of this project relies on a foundation of diversity and encourages a wide range of perspectives. </p> <hr> <p>CONTACTS</p> <p>Alexa Salsbury | Graduate Student | asalsbur@vt.edu </p> <p>Anne Brown, PhD | Assistant Professor | ambrown7@vt.edu </p> <p>Justin Lemkul, PhD | Assistant Professor | jalemkul@vt.edu </p> <p><em>This project is developed and maintained by groups from Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and University Libraries.
