The STEMulate Learning supercomputing node reaches 21 years of combined CPU power towards the World Community Grid, serving as an educational example every week by tweeting its progress towards solutions for globally critical issues of disease control and resource availability. This crowd-funded project is starting to spin off new projects for students in turn as we build Raspberry Pi clusters for classroom use! Continue reading

Raspberry Pi brings back memories of the ZX81

Timex Sinclair ZX81 Computer

The Raspberry Pi computer reminds me of the Timex Sinclair ZX81 that let me build my own computer, and will enable today’s learners to step forward towards the next 30 years in turn! both are products seen first in the UK and enjoy many similarities, although the 30 years between also provide some extraordinary steps forward!

STEMulateOrg’s WCG – 14 Years Since January!

STEMulate Learning Lab's 14 years of CPU contributed to global projects

STEMulate Learning’s “World Community Grid” participation will soon reach its 14th year of CPU power donated to humanitarian projects addressing global issues such as diseases, power and water resources. The high-performance computing node was crowd-funded in Round 1 of the #SciFund Challenge and went online in January of this year! Continue reading

WCG Continues

The computing node funded in #SciFund Round 1 continues to dedicate its processing power to the World Community Grid, adding its computational power to numerous projects of global interest. The node’s contributions are always visible on the STEMulate Learning twitter … Continue reading

1st Full Day’s Contribution to the World Community Grid

The first node has been running the World Community Grid client for a little over a day now. The node has a single processor with four cores (it can handle four simultaneous projects at once) and switches between projects every … Continue reading

RocketHub #SciFund Challenge!

The first STEMulate Learning #SciFund Challenge through RocketHub did not reach its overall goal, but the STEMulate Learning project was still successful! Thanks to the generosity of our fuelers, we raised $122 in donations along with donated computer components from two older systems. Total … Continue reading
