– A Work in Progress –
Understanding The Universe represents a framework for leveraging the education and outreach efforts of various physical science experiments and Grid computing initiatives supported by the National Science Foundation. This federated approach to bringing the education, computer science, and physical science communities together is a grassroots effort that holds great promise to promote and support collaborative learning.
Building upon the Grid infrastructure and virtual data tools and techniques, this collaborative seeks to create an environment where scientists, researchers, educators, and students can contribute knowledge, skills, and resources.
This framework is in its embryonic phase, so please check back often to see the latest developments.
This project is supported in part by the National Science Foundation and the Office of High Energy Physics, Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy.
