Teacher & Student


DesignSafe is engaging K-12 students through interactive education and outreach programs. CODE @ TACC: CONNECTED is an innovative and exciting summer program that lets students explore where coding meets communities. Students will create models of solutions for social and societally relevant problems that use networked sensors and the cloud. Learn how data can be used to tell a science story. All current 10th through 11th grade high school students are welcome to apply. Thirty students will be accepted and housed in a campus dorm at The University of Texas (UT) at Austin. Students are expected to participate in CODE @ TACC Connected until the conclusion of the program. All students will be invited to participate in quarterly Back @ TACC STEM workshops upon completion of the program.

Research Experience for Undergraduates

DesignSafe hosts students from the NHERI-NCO Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. Engineering undergraduate students nationwide may apply to the REU program and select the NHERI Experimental Facility of their choosing to perform research during the summer under the guidance from a NHERI researcher. REU participants at TACC perform research into engineering data archival and analysis using the DesignSafe platform.
