Guided Interest Groups
Guided Interest Groups (GIGs) are community learning experiences where SCALE participants shepherd interested students through the SC technical program.
At SC, we’re eager to reach out to the next generation of high performance computing (HPC) professionals! We’ve gathered resources to help students understand the possibilities in the field of HPC, and also to help teachers explain and explore HPC in their classrooms.
