Ohio Supercomputer Center Grooming Next Generation of Scientists

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will be graduating a group of 15 high-school scientists on Friday July 22, 2005 as part of its 17 th annual Summer Institute, "SI 2005: Supercomputing to Infinity and Beyond."

Since 1989 OSC has been preparing future technology leaders by offering a two-week intensive program that gives academically-gifted Ohio high school freshmen and sophomores a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the dynamic fields of high performance computing (HPC) and networking using some of the world's best supercomputers.

OSC Announces 2005 YWSI Middle-School Participants

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has selected 18 of Ohio's middle-school girls to participate in its Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI) held on July 31-August 6, 2005 in Columbus.

YWSI is a weeklong program sponsored by OSC for middle-school girls in Ohio. It is designed to promote computer, math and science 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.

Ohio High School Students "Push the Envelope" as Computational Scientists at SI2004

Fifteen of Ohio’s brightest computational scientists just happen to be high school freshmen and sophomores. They worked with high performance computing applications such as parallel processing, networking, and computer engineering during the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Summer Institute (SI). This two-week program, held on July 12-23 and entitled “SI2004: Pushing the Envelope of Supercomputing,” offered talented high school students the rare opportunity to conduct research on supercomputers.

High School Students Invited to Take an Odyssey in Supercomputing

OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) and The Ohio State University (OSU) will host their 13th annual Summer Institute, SI 2001: An Odyssey in Supercomputing, July 16-27, 2001.

Computing is not limited to academia and business anymore. It has quickly become a normal part of our daily lives. Rapid development in computing has impacted our work, play, education and commerce. Those who stay on the pulse of technological change today will be the information leaders of tomorrow.

2003 Summer Institute for Advanced Computation Focuses on Homeland Security Computing

Approximately 60 professionals from academia, industry and the military attended the Fifth Annual Summer Institute for Advanced Computation (SIAC), sponsored by the Information Technology Research Institute and Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).
