Panel discussion on Computer Algebra Systems use within computer science courses, organized by Dr. Joe Zachary of the University of Utah. Stewart's contribution, Computational Programming and Visualization addressed the use of MATLAB as a computing environment to develop student's problem solving skills through programming and visualization and computational experiments with written lab reports.

SIAM Annual Meeting, July 1996, Kansas City, MO
Poster session on Lessons Learned from In-Service Teacher Enhancement in Computational Science describing STEP and the four years of interactions with high school science and math teachers to facilitate the use of modern computational science tools in the learning environment of schools.

4th Annual Computer and Computational Sciences Program for Minority Youth at Cal Tech
Key note talk on The Wild World of Supercomputers: It's not Just FLOPS Anymore. The point I tried to make is that HPC [High Performance Computing] is not HPCCC [High Performance Computing, Communication and COLLABORATION]. Please access the link above for the actual presentation.

Supercomputing '95 Technical/Education paper (8/15/95)
High Performance Computing Curriculum Development at SDSU using SDSC resouces summarized curriculum development at San Diego State University for an upper division, interdisciplinary course on high performance computing and a lower division computational programming and visualization course designed to develop scientific problem solving skills in students new to programming.
