The Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has set itself the goal of contributing to the promotion of particularly gifted pupils. As part of the "Simulated Worlds" project, pupils from the 11th grade onwards are allowed to conduct research on a project that combines computer science and the natural sciences. In the course of the school year, the pupils meet about once a week with their supervising scientist at the SCC. There is a choice of various topics from engineering sciences, physics, meteorology and medical technology in which simulations, high-performance computing and big data are used. This includes the opportunity to work on the High Performance Computera, which are operated at the SCC. Depending on their commitment, the students receive a scholarship of up to 1000€.
