Assembling the "Goliath" Cluster

Some of the high school students here are cabling up what will be the “Goliath” cluster, a cluster of 3 old Pentium-4 desktops with 100Mb ethernet.

SciNet’s education program extends beyond the university. Our outreach efforts include:

  1. Data centre tours.
  2. Bringing HPC experience to high schools (building mini-clusters, parallel programming,  …).
  3. The Teach the Teachers project, currently involving 12 teachers from 6 schools.
  4. The Big Data Challenge for High School Students (co-organizer and jury members).
  5. Participation in Science Rendezvous, an annual festival that takes science onto the  street.
