The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) hosted the 28th annual student summer STEM institute, during which the students worked on cutting-edge science projects with mentors at ORNL. The student projects this summer dealt with Supercomputers, Thermochromic Windows, Biochemical Pathways, Robotics Systems, Engineering Development and High-Altitude Ballooning.
The eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and NICS have helped researchers discover what's behind the difference between two types of black hole jets.
XSEDE now offers multi-factor authentication for another layer of security.
Computational scientists from NICS and JICS are collaborating with medical researchers to enhance image processing.
