The National Science Foundation sponsored TeraGrid program is a partnership of people, resources, and services working to advance scientific research, technology, and education. A key part of this mission is helping educators better prepareÂ students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
On June 25th, 2009, TeraGrid hosted a Bridge Day event that brought middle school and high school teachers together with experts in high performance computing (HPC) to discuss strategies for improving STEM education. Bridge Day gave these teachers a small sample of the resources TeraGrid provided to K-12 classrooms this year.
