Students from Oakland’s Life Academy Get a Glimpse of Scientific Computing

June 3, 2016

Ten students and two teachers from Oakland’s Life Academy spent the morning of Friday, June 3, learning about what supercomputers are used for, what it takes to run a center like NERSC and the importance of high-speed networking. They also received a hands-on lesson in Arduino, an open source hardware and software program for controlling electronic devices. The visit was arranged by Tokiwa Smith of BLEND, the Berkeley Lab Exploration of New Discoveries program managed by Berkeley Lab’s… Read More »
