ICHEC at BTYSE'13

Posted on 22 December 2012

In January 2013, ICHEC will showcase all things supercomputing at the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE) to primary and secondary level students. At the stand in the World of Science & Technology Hall ICHEC will display a fully configured live mini "supercomputer" built from the relatively cheap Raspberry Pi boards, 3D scientific visualisations of climate and weather data, present the latest in accelerators/coprocessors and run introductory sessions into HPC, networking, and parallel programming languages.
