Touring Hopper Supercomputer at Berkeley Lab

TechWomen Emerging Leader in front of Hopper

TechWomen Emerging Leaders were invited to tour the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on Thursday in order to learn more about the work of the lab and research programs. Specifically, TechWomen visited the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), where computing is used to solve some of today’s most fundamental scientific questions.

The highlight of the afternoon was visiting the Hopper Supercomputer – one of the most powerful computers in the world. To put it in perspective, if the computational power of earth is equal to each human solving one arithmetic equation every couple minutes, Hopper is like 1,000,000 earths!

To put it simply, the TechWomen were in awe. One of the emerging leaders said, “I’m blown away. It’s like I’m watching a sci-fi movie.”
