Past CC* SWEETER Events
Department of Visualization Data Center Tour
Texas A&M University's Department of Visualization graduate course led by Philip Galanter toured the Teague data center to learn more about various hardware systems provided by HPRC. On the tour, they learned about high performance interconnectivity/fabrics, power, cooling and Cybersecurity. In addition, student were presented with HPC software resources and engaged in topics including MPI and OpenMP parallelization, compilers, and advanced rendering software.
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
Data Science Bootcamp
The Texas A&M Institute of Data Science (TAMIDS), Texas A&M High Performance Research Computing (HPRC), and the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) held a two-day hands-on data science bootcamp on August 19 & 20, 2019. This camp introduced the fundamentals of Data Science to students and researchers from Texas A&M University, Blinn College, and Minority Serving Institutions in Texas.
