CCT Weekly, March 26, 2013

Please Note:

  • The university will be closed on Friday, March 29th in observance of Easter. 

  • Alice in Computation Land, June 10-14, at LSU, is currently full. Accepting standby registrations only. "Alice in Computation Land" is a five-day workshop for girls entering grades six through eight (6-8) who are interested in learning more about computational science and technology. During this camp, we will address how to use computer applications in your daily lives and take a glimpse into what careers are available in the world of science and technology. For more information, visit https://www.cct.lsu.edu/events/alice-computationland-summer-camp-2013.
  • The Beowulf Bootcamp is open for registration. CCT will host the sixth Beowulf Boot Camp July 8-12 on the LSU campus. This exciting course offers students and teachers a unique opportunity to work with advanced research technology not usually available in a typical classroom setting.
During Beowulf Boot Camp 2013, students will work hands-on with a number of LSU professors as they learn how to build and use supercomputers.
    • WHO:  Louisiana High School Students, Baton Rouge Community College Students, and Louisiana Teachers
  
            
    • Students will engage in the following activities:
      • building a computer cluster from scratch
      • installing the Linux operating system on the computer they've built
      • connecting computers put together by their peers to make a mini-supercomputer
      • learning how to program a mini-supercomputer in parallel with Python
      • interactive activities to help understand how Parallel computing works in Supercomputing
      • running performance benchmarks to determine how your cluster ranks in comparison with the fastest and largest supercomputers in the world
    • This camp is introductory so students do not need a strong computational science background to participate. Some knowledge of programming a plus.
    • For more information and to register, visit http://www.cct.lsu.edu/beowulfcamp2013
