ABSTRACT

Computational science is in the spotlight as a new discipline of information science technology with rapid advance of computer technology. It is a field that solves various problems from humanities, social science, natural science and engineering using numerical method and computational calculation. To train experts in computational science area, opportunities for students to be exposed to that area should be secured. Especially, experts with hearing impairment are in need considering accessibility to and their preference for information science technology. Based on these significance, this study developed, implemented and evaluated Inclusive Computational Science Camp Program applying CIPP model. We tried to analyze pros and cons of the program so that those factors could be considered in further studies. The contents of the camp program consisted of lectures, team projects, active learning, and games referring to earlier studies regarding science camps. The program was face-validated by five computational science experts who participated in the development process. It was implemented as a form of camp providing room and board for two days and one night during summer vacation. After the implementation, evaluation data were collected from 111 students (13 with disabilities, 85 without disabilities, and 13 college student mentors) and 20 staffs. The evaluation process was composed of context evaluation, input evaluation, process evaluation, and product evaluation according to CIPP model, and divided by two parts for students and staffs. The four evaluation parts were analyzed, and some implications were provided for further studies of Inclusive Computational Science Camp Program.
