Feedback form is now closed.
Exploring key trends in computational science, and their impact on computing education:
1) Learning to program is getting harder.  Many of the features that make computers easier to use also raise the barrier between users and programmers.
2) Computational science is embracing software engineering tools and practices as keys to reproducible, reliable science.
3) Statistics in the undergraduate curriculum is being edged out by data science.  Will K-12 follow?
