Saving the World with Supercomputers!

  • Grades 4-10
  • Computers are helping us solve many toughest problems in the world from understanding climate change, environmental impacts, expansion of the universe, to decoding viruses like COVID19. The toughest problems need more powerful computers, in fact, they need supercomputers! So what's a supercomputer? No, it doesn't have a cape. :) How does it work? And most importantly, what problems can it solve? In this talk, one of the top experts, Prof. Yelick from UC Berkeley, will introduce you to the fascinating field of Supercomputers and the powerful things they can deliver. Prof. Yelick received her PhD degree in Computer Science in MIT. She is a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at Berkeley and the Associate Laboratory Director for Computing Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
