Biocomplexity,also known as computational biomodeling – an interdisciplinary field which blends biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, and mathematics – is a new area of research which can be readily incorporated into the high school science and mathematics curriculum.  In this project, we have developed several hands-on exercises and a basic website designed to describe the nature of biomodeling as well as offer classroom activities that can fit into any course, and are illustrative of the kinds of research currently under examination at a number of colleges and universities.
