In the frame of the „Simulierte Welten“ project, which took place in the winter semester 2014/2015, the SCC provided eight grants for eight students of the Bismarck- Gymnasium and Neureut Gymnasium in Karlsruhe. Under the supervision of SCC employees, the eight high school students had the possibility to learn about modelling and simulation of different processes on High Performance Computing (HPC) Systems.
In particular, four main topics were investigated: Climate Modelling, High Energy Physics Analysis, Aerosol Formation and Protein Folding. The scholarship holders presented the „Simulierte Welten“ project results during the KIT Open Day on 27th June, 2015.
At the end of the Colloquium, the students received a certificate from Prof. Achim Streit and there was a guided tour through the SCC HPC System rooms. The project „Simulierte Welten“ is financed by The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of the State of Baden-Württemberg.
