COSMOS Students Visit NERSC, ALS, and Cybersecurity Group

Last month, Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences hosted two dozen students from the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science, or COSMOS. A month-long summer program for high school students who excel at math and science, COSMOS allows participants to take subject-specific classes taught by UC faculty and researchers. The visiting students were from the Computer Security, Privacy and Cybervillainy cluster, partly taught by CRD’s Sean Peisert. As part of the Berkeley Lab tour, the students visited the NERSC facility where they got to see some of the world’s fastest supercomputers; they learned about NERSC’s and Berkeley Lab cybersecurity, and toured the Advanced Light Source.
