Students stepped into the world of high-performance computing and networking at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) during this residential program. Students explored scientific investigation through collaborative team projects and intensive classes. Ohio high school teachers also participated in this program.

The Summer Institute team projects encouraged student participation and drew upon their creativity and imagination. The projects provided a window to the world of high-performance computing and were designed to demonstrate the challenges that many users encounter. Each project required a number of students ("scientists/ engineers") to understand the problem, write the computer program(s), and visualize the results.
Each SI student participated in a team project. The number of students in a group varied between three and four. The students selected their own teams, elected a project leader, and chose a project.
This years projects included:
- Chaotic Motions
- Crystal Growth in a Computer
- Fluid Mechanics
- Kinetic and Statistical Descriptions of Matter
- Mechanical Engineering Analysis
- Parallel Processing
- Reed-Frost Epidemic Model
- Three-Dimensional Geometric Scenes using VRML
- 2-D Wave Project
