This includes contributing to multi-day camps centered around programming and big data visualization, as well as events like Hour of Code and SC’s Student Cluster Competition. Additionally, the ALCF’s annual summer student program gives college students the opportunity to work side-by-side with staff members on real-world research projects and utilize some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, collaborating in areas like computational science, HPC system administration, and data science.
