Summer Educational Programs at OSC

COVID-19 Update (3/5/21): 

Due to the continuing challenges of COVID-19, OSC has made the difficult decision to suspend the Summer Institute and Young Women's Summer Institute residential programming for 2021. Submitted applications will be retained for next year and any student who was eligible to apply this year will remain eligible in 2022.

In place of these programs, OSC is offering virtual events open to all interested students with no application required. Thank you for your patience and please stay tuned for further updates.

Summer Institute

Summer Institute is the Ohio Supercomputer Center's two-week summer camp for Ohio's brightest high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior years. Participants experience the dynamic fields of high performance computing and networking first hand. Working with a faculty of experts in high performance computing (HPC), networking, engineering and the sciences, students learn computing fundamentals such as programming languages, parallel processing techniques and visualization toolkits. SI is sponsored by The Ohio State University.

Young Women's Summer Institute

Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) is the Ohio Supercomputer Center's week-long program for middle school girls in Ohio. 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 an interesting and practical scientific problem using the latest computer technology.
