Slightly off-topic (but not too far):

The SuperComputing (SC) Education Program is a year-long program working
with undergraduate faculty and students (undergraduate and graduate) to
integrate computational science and high performance computing and
communications technologies highlighted through the SC Conference into
the preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers,
mathematicians and teachers.

The SC Education Program hosts about 10 week-long workshops each summer
covering a variety of topics in parallel and distributed computing and
computational thinking, and computational {biology, chemistry, physics,
engineering}.  The workshops are primarily funded through the SC
conference series, attendees are only responsible for their travel and
a fully refunded registration deposit.

Information about each workshop and registration are available at
http://sc-education.org/workshops/schedule.php  Registration is open  
the full summer schedule is at the end of this message.

Please forward this message to anyone who you think might benefit from
attending one of the workshops.  Our goal is to help faculty infuse  
curriculum with parallel/distributed/cluster/computational material.
Questions can be directed to me or to workshops at sc-education.org
