Via R&D mag:

“We’re geeks, and we’re motivated.”

That’s how Amin Amooie, a doctoral student in earth sciences at The Ohio State University, explained his team’s efforts to build the supercomputer they’ve dubbed “Buckeye Pi.”

They are just learning how to write computer code for scientific simulations, he said, so it doesn’t make sense to test their code on full-scale academic supercomputers.

That’s why they set out to make their own.

Buckeye Pi is a platform for students to learn how to develop efficient, scalable computer code for research in the sciences.

Last month, Amooie described Buckeye Pi at the American Geophysical Union meeting in New Orleans.And, with 128 circuit boards and 512 processors, it’s also the most powerful student-built supercomputer ever made from off-the-shelf Raspberry Pi circuit boards.
