Ohio Supercomputer Center Showcases Technology

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Sep 10, 1997) — 

US Representative Deborah Pryce (R-OH-15) hosted representatives from the Ohio Supercomputer Center and experts in high performance computing for a networking presentation on September 10 for members of the Congressional Internet Caucus and the Ohio Delegation to learn the educational value of the Internet.

"As Congress considers the most effective ways to put technology to work for our studentst, this presentation has shed light on the Internet training and education initiatives that are working for today's colleges and universities in Ohio," Pryce said. "I commend the Ohio Supercomputer Center and everyone involved with this project for making Ohio a leader in information technology."

Presenters from higher education institutions across the state, including the University of Cincinnati, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, Kent State University, University of Dayton, and the University of Toledo, were on-hand to update members of Congress and staff on educational uses of high performance networking applications. Members of Congress and staff saw first-hand how these applications benefit higher education nationwide, and how they are helping Ohio to become a national leader in information technology by increasing its strength in networking.
