Institute for Chemistry Literacy through Computational Science (ICLCS) project, funded by US National Science Foundation (NSF), has adapted a teacher-centered approach to instruct the educational uses of computation in chemistry based researches. The Department of Chemistry, the College of Medicine, and the National Center for Supercomputing Application (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) together have brought the project. The study provides an overview of the whole programs, details on chemistry content, computational tools, example successes, challenges, and a description of a new computational workbench interface. The study also demonstrated the participants and their students' classroom experiences and also discussed the ways petascale computing will impact educational science and further promote scientific literacy.
