Fueled through Round 1 of the #SciFund Challenge, the STEMulate Learning compute node has continued providing resources to the World Community Grid – adding its CPU power towards finding solutions for global issues. Since coming online January 4th of 2012, the combined CPU cores of STEMulate Learning’s team have donated over 1 year and 39 days of total processing time.
This progress is used to demonstrate high-performance computing and grid computing, as well as the value of individual contributions towards common goals in the global community. At this present time, the World Community Grid is supporting 12 humanitarian Projects selected based on a proposed project’s characteristics:
- Focused on solving problems to benefit humanity
- Conducted by public or nonprofit organizations
- Contributed to the public domain
- Accelerated by grid computing technology
Anyone can download the BOINC grid computing client that will run when their system is idle and join the STEMulate Learning Team to help support the World Commuity Grid here:
Participation costs nothing, this is a free download and only uses computing resources when your system is otherwise idle and unused. Help to keep STEMulate Learning’s humanitarian effort going and provide a continued example of what engaged citizens can do to make a difference in the world!
