Introducing HPC to a wider audience

Upward Bound

Starting in 2021, the Blugold Center for High-Performance Computing team and several UW-Eau Claire faculty members have been holding an annual summer workshop for high school students named Upward Bound. During this multi-day workshop, students participate in interactive demonstrations taught by our faculty and technology staff to discover how High-Performance Computing tackles today's scientific challenges in a wide variety of fields.

Presenting Departments:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry and Biochemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Geography and Anthropology
  • Materials Science and Biomedical Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Physics and Astronomy
  • Learning and Technology Services

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

Initiated and coordinated by faculty members Dr. Rahul Gomes and Dr. Sudeep Bhattacharyay in 2022, we've had the pleasure of participating in a three-year 10-week summer REU program supported by the NSF grant titled, "Advancing high-performance computing opportunities in undergraduate research at UW-Eau Claire to meet challenges of multidisciplinary computational science". During this program, ten undergraduate students from across the nation are hosted by our campus to participate in research projects.
