BSC presents SuperGeek, a mascot to bring supercomputers closer to the youngest


The first public appearance of SuperGeek has taken place during the YoMo Barcelona Festival.
2 Mar 2018 Barcelona - Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) now enjoys the services of SuperGeek, a mascot whose mission is to bring supercomputers closer to young people and stimulate their interest in science and technology.

The first public appearance of the mascot has been in the form of a shirt during the YoMo Barcelona 2018 Festival, in which the BSC has held workshops and talks, and has also set up an interactive stand for the students. SuperGeek has also been in charge of guiding the interactive quiz with didactic purposes developed by the BSC for the YoMo Festival.

This initiative is part of the actions carried out by BSC to bring its technological and research activity to the whole society. The centre organizes guided visits to the MareNostrum supercomputer, which was visited by more than 10,000 people last year - the public can request a guided visit at visits@bsc.es , and participates in numerous informative events such as the OpenHouse open day, the BIYSC programme of the La Pedrera Foundation, the Festa de la Ciència organized by the Barcelona City Council or the Mobile Week, among others.

BSC also collaborates in the organisation of several Hackathons and Datathons, such as the one recently organized by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB).
