Supercomputing made easy...

How many teenagers does it take to build a supercomputer?
Nineteen, well that's how many came to our Smallpeice Trust course 'Supercomputing in Engineering'.
This great group of 17 year olds built a supercomputer with Windows Compute Cluster 2003 in just a day! Not only that, but they designed and test flew some radical environmentally-friendly airliners on our simulator too!
See what they got up to here... (yes, we did play Guitar Hero II on the Xbox 360 a lot!).
For details of this, and other great courses for Year 9-12 youngsters, check out
