Ohio Supercomputer Center offers summer programmes for students

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is offering offers summer programs for high school students and middle school girls interested in gaining experience in HPC. Currently, OSC is accepting applications for these programs – Summer Institute and Young Women’s Summer Institute – until April 7.

This year the Summer Institute (SI) will take place from June 4-16 for Ohio high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior years. Participants in the summer programme will work in small teams to use supercomputers for practical applications such as solving complex science and engineering problems, conducting network forensics to catch hackers, studying the spread of diseases and designing computer games.

The Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) is June 25-July 1 for girls entering seventh or eighth grade in Ohio and is designed to promote computer, math, science and engineering skills, as well as to provide hands-on, real science experience.

The OSC, which has been in operation for more than 25 years, is a statewide resource that provides supercomputing services and computational science expertise to Ohio University researchers as well as Ohio industries. The OSC aims to provide expertise to both researchers and industry across four key areas: Supercomputing, research, education and cyberinfrastructure.
