Ohio high school and junior high school students step into the world of high performance computing and networking during OSC's annual Summer Institute (SI) and the Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI).
The Summer Institute (SI) is a two-week summer camp for Ohio's brightest high school freshmen and sophomores. Participants experience the dynamic fields of high performance computing and network firsthand. OSC employs a faculty of experts in HPC, networking, engineering and the sciences to teach students computing fundamentals such as programming language, parallel processing techniques and visualization toolkits. Sponsored by OSC and The Ohio State University.
Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) is a week-long program sponsored by OSC for middle-school girls in Ohio. It is designed to promote computer, math, science and engineering skills as well as 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.
