Computational Modules in Science Teaching (CMIST) is an innovative science-learning program for secondary/undergraduate classes developed by the National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing team at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. The CMIST modules supplement traditional pedagogy by connecting scientific concepts across the curriculum and integrating a more quantitative approach to teaching science. CMIST modules are visually engaging with a highly accurate view of biological/ medical physiology and provide a very effective means to improve student understanding and retention of complex multidisciplinary material. These modules successfully bridge cutting-edge research and teaching, exciting student interest at all levels thus promoting future careers in science and technology. CMIST addresses several critical issues in science education specifically unification of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The modules are currently also being made available as an open source on the Internet ( We will present our newest CMIST module entitled, "Enzymes -- Structure and Function".
