Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tool
25 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Yi Kong, Krishna Madhavan
This is the presentation for a paper presented at the 2015 annual American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) conference. The paper discusses a developed framework for evaluating and scaffolding student-developed simulations in an open-ended learning environment. The full paper...
Mathematical Models and Simulations Workshop Presentation
10 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan, Yi Kong
Developing engineers for a changing world presents a greater need for students to understand simulations. Understanding mathematical models and simulations are skills that all engineers need for industry and research, but many engineering students lack a conceptual understanding of how to...
Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tools
21 Jul 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan
Computer simulations are discussed in the learning environment from two major perspectives: 1) teaching students how to build simulations and 2) developing simulations to teach students targeted concepts. This study is approaching learning with simulations from a different perspective. We are...
NCN Education Team: Student Research

Using nanoHUB to Introduce Elementary and Middle School Students to Models and Simulations
25 Mar 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens
This is a combination hands-on and simulation activity that will teach middle school students about the function and importance of modeling and simulations in science and engineering while learning about three important carbon nanostructures: graphene, bucky balls, and carbon nanotubes. The...
[Illinois] MCB 493 Neural Systems Modeling
29 Oct 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Thomas J. Anastasio
The purpose of this independent study is to give students hands-on experience in using computers to model neural systems. A neural system is a system of interconnected neural elements, or units. Students will use existing computer programs which will simulate real neural systems. They will...
[Illinois] Genetic Engineering for Nisin Diffusion and Tool Walkthrough
30 Jul 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Asha Kirchhoff
In this video Illinois Bioengineering student Asha Kirchhoff discusses the fundamentals behind the Biomedical Engineering Society's Nisin Diffusion experiment and setup for Engineering Open House. She also provides a walkthrough for the Nisin Diffusion tool hosted here at Nanohub.org.
Quantum Dot Quantum Computation Simulator
04 Aug 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Sutton
Performs simulations of quantum dot quantum computation using a model Hamiltonian with an on-site magnetic field and modulated inter-dot exchange interaction.
A methodology for SPICE-compatible modeling of nanoMOSFETs
17 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alba Graciela Avila, David Espejo
An original SPICE-compatible model for Intel's 45nm High-K MOSFET is presented. It takes into account some Quantum-Mechanical Effects that occur at small scale like Channel Length Modulation (CLM), Threshold Voltage variation and Velocity saturation, and is the first in his class that is not...
Solar Cells Operation and Modeling
15 Jul 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This set of slides decribes the basic principles of operation of various generations on solar cells with emphasis to single crystalline solar cells. Next, semiconductor equations that describe the operation of a solar cell under simplified conditions is given. Finally, modeling of single...
