Summer Computing Academy (2017-2019)
Texas A&M High Performance Research Computing (HPRC) held its first HPRC Summer Computing Academy from July 24 to July 28, 2017. Twenty-one high school students from College Station, its surrounding areas, and even as far as Florida, learned how to program on a Raspberry Pi computer, experimented with cool Pi sensors such as buzzers and LED lights, and even built a computing cluster using the Raspberry Pis. The participants also enjoyed tours of the A&M campus and some of its facilities. To cap it all off there was a reception with cake, ice cream, and sodas for the participants and their parents.
HPRC would like to thank the TAMU community for all their support:
- Texas A&M University Division of Research
- Laboratory for Molecular Simulation
- Texas A&M University Information Technology
- Texas A&M University Engineering Information Technology
