I believe in giving high school students hands-on experience with real-life, research-grade tools. These tools can be so sophisticated that even after years of teaching computational chemistry, I’m not sure what each application does. So, I encourage my students to experiment.
The Schrödinger Online Learning Program has launched a new course called Introduction to Molecular Modeling Concepts for Polymers. This latest course teaches students how industry-leading computational molecular modeling tools are used to aid in polymer material development and design.
