research findings optiputer project preuss school ucsd
Research FindingsOptIPuter Project—Preuss School UCSD
  • Real-Time 3D Visualization and Ready, High-Speed Access to Data can have a Significant Impact on Learning in the Earth Sciences.
    • Teacher Education/Collaboration is Essential for the Success of the Overall Project
  • Having Identical GeoWalls at UCSD/SIO and the Preuss School UCSD Makes it Feasible to Develop Scientific Visualizations that can then be Directly Ported to the Preuss GeoWall System
  • This and other Results were Published by SIO Researchers
    • “The Visualization Center at Scripps Institution of Oceanography: Education & Outreach” in a Special Education and Outreach Issue of the Journal Seismological Research Letters

Meetings, Presentations, Conference Participation
  • January 25, 2003. CENIC Board Meeting, Sacramento, California. Rozeanne Steckler gave an invited presentation on the OptIPuter education project, describing how educational material being developed for the Preuss School will be made available on the web for all schools. (Quicktime movies will be used in lieu of the GeoWall visualizations for classrooms that do not have state-of-the-art equipment.)
  • February 3, 2003. Preuss School UCSD Visualization Center dedication, with presentations by Rozeanne Steckler and Larry Smarr. This is an advanced visualization facility for teaching earth sciences and eventually biomedical imaging, and is the result of OptIPuter funding.
  • March 18-21, 2003. NPACI All-hands meeting, San Diego, CA. Rozeanne Steckler and Mike Bailey gave a presentation of the earth science education effort taking place at the UCSD Preuss School as part of the OptIPuter project.
  • May 24, 2003. The SIO Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP), US Geological Survey (USGS), Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), and Birch Aquarium at Scripps (BAS) held an earthquake education workshop at SIO’s Visualization Center for ~40 San Diego K-12 teachers http://www.siovizcenter.ucsd.edu/workshop/index.html.
socal education year two goals
SoCal EducationYear Two Goals
  • Begin use of the Optical Networking in Partnership with the GeoWall Visualization System to Enhance both Middle School and High School Science Classes at the Preuss School UCSD
  • UCSD’s Sixth College will:
    • Select a Group of Undergraduate Students, from its Distinctive Honors Students, to Join OptIPuter Application Teams and Work on The OptIPuter Node Located Within the College
    • Have its Curriculum Support Group Begin In Fall 03 To Develop Laboratory Exercises for its Junior-Level Undergraduate Course, “Exploring Data” (The Course will be Offered First in Fall ‘04
