The Education Program is hosting a four-day intensive program that
will immerse participants in High Performance Computing (HPC) and
Computational and Data Enabled Science and Engineering (CDESE).

The program will begin Saturday, November 12 (early morning) and
end Tuesday, November 15 (late afternoon).

The focus of the program is to introduce HPC, CDESE and
computational tools, resources and methods to undergraduate faculty
and to pre-college educators in Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines, as well as to undergraduate and
graduate students considering careers teaching in STEM disciplines.

The program also assists educators in integrating HPC, CDESE and
computational techniques into their classrooms and research

This year's Education Program will include a variety of plenary
sessions, guided tours of the exhibit hall, breakout sessions,
focused hands-on tutorials and birds-of-a-feather gatherings, as
well as formal and informal opportunities to interact with other
SC communities and exhibitors.
