From June 29th through July 10th, 2015, fifteen talented high school students from around the nation participated in a two-week summer program, organized by the University of Notre Dame’s Summer Scholars program and hosted by the Center for Research Computing (CRC). The aim of the program is to introduce students to the important role research computing plays on campus, as well as highlight the national and international impact of high-performance computing (HPC) and computational science in tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems.
