Summer Educational Programs at OSC

COVID-19 Update:  OSC is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.  Since the Institutes are scheduled for mid June/July and involve at most 20 students, we have no current plans to cancel or alter the schedule.  We encourage students to still apply for the programs.  Should a program be canceled, any fees paid to OSC will be fully refundable.

Young Women's Summer Institute

Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) is a week-long program for middle-school girls in Ohio, sponsored by Ohio Supercomputer Center. YWSI is designed to promote computer, math, science and engineering skills, as well as to provide hands-on experiences. YWSI helps girls develop an interest in these subjects by allowing them to work on a practical, interesting scientific problem using the latest computer technology.
