At the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE), 10-12 January 2013, PRACE with a stand managed by the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC) showcased what supercomputers are used for to primary and secondary level students in Dublin, Ireland. At the ICHEC stand in the World of Science & Technology Hall a fully configured live mini “supercomputer” built from Raspberry Pi boards was on display. In addition, HPC introductory sessions and 3D visualisations of climate and weather data were presented while interactive demonstrations were used to showcase the latest in accelerators/coprocessors technology.
