A week-long camp designed to help Ohio middle-school girls gain computer, math, and science skills while having fun is being sponsored by OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center).

The Young Women's Summer Institute is open to students who are currently sixth and seventh graders. Thirty girls and five K-12 teachers will be admitted to the OSC program in Columbus, Ohio or Kent State University in Kent, Ohio.

Platform Lab received and installed an important contribution from Sun Microsystems, Inc. as the lab opened its doors for operation. The contribution includes four enterprise-level Sun 220R dual processor systems, each with two gigabytes of memory, a pair of Sun Netra web application servers, and significant disk storage capacity.

These systems provide mid-range enterprise-level computing capacity and are available to users of the new facility. The estimated value of the contribution is in excess of $100,000.

Platform Lab will be hosting a grand opening event on January 31, 2002, 4-6:30 p.m. at its facility at the Business Technology Center, 1275 Kinnear Road, Columbus. The Lab is now open for business and the first customers already are testing software applications.
