DUG hosted the final year Computer Science students from local high school, Shenton College, for a tour of our Perth supercomputer and hands-on lesson from System’s Architect, Stuart Midgley. The students were instantly “hands-in” as they marvelled at our innovative dielectric-fluid cooling technology. And then Stuart blew their minds with comparisons of the power of our supercomputer to their much-loved gaming PCs!
It was an invaluable lesson in how the theoretical translates to the actual. For many of them it drew together their studies in physics, computing and mathmatics. For us, it was an chance to meet the engineers, programmers and technicians of the future.
