This module introduces the 2008-'09 Open Education Cup that is being launched during SC08 (http://sc08.supercomputing.org/) in Austin, Texas. The Open Education Cup was conceived of and created in an attempt to create awareness and enhance the interest in creating Open Educational Resources (OER) in the area of High Performance Computing (HPC). We hope that the effort will help the HPC community recognize and embrace the opportunity that OER represents for accelerating workforce development. OER can enable educators, instructors and learners to access a rich set of free online teaching and learning material and hence lower the barriers to offering education and training programs.
For details and the most up to date rules on how to submit a lesson (Connexions module ) to the contest visit the Open Education Cup ( (External Link) ) web page. The objective of this section is to provide a bird’s eye view of the contest. If there is disagreement between statements made in the printed version of this document, the electronic version of this document and in the contest website, the contest website should always be considered the "gold standard."

Introduction

This booklet was created to support the 2008-'09 Open Education Cup that was launched during SC08 ( (External Link) ) in Austin, Texas. The Open Education Cup was conceived of and created in an attempt to create awareness and enhance the interest in creating Open Educational Resources (OER) in the area of HPC. We hope that the effort will help the HPC community recognize and embrace the opportunity that OER represents for accelerating workforce development. OER can enable educators, instructors and learners to access a rich set of free online teaching and learning material, hence lowering the barriers to offering education and training programs.

It is critically important that we, as a community, recognize the increasing role of cyberinfrastructure in society. In particular, we must enable a larger fraction of our science and engineering graduates to become familiar with and even master the necessary technical skills to be productive citizens. The Open Education Cup will help create much needed content that can be used by teachers, instructors and learners to become at a minimum HPC literate or, better yet, capable of harnessing complex HPC resources and become expert users and programmers of current and future HPC systems. This is important, whether the objective is to harness the power of a national supercomputer with 100s of thousand of cores, exploit and program “personal supercomputers” with hardware accelerators delivering multi-teraflop capabilities, or program personal laptops that soon will have dozens of processing cores.

The modules included in the booklet you are holding was not meant to represent specific content relevant to HPC, but was assembled in an attempt to demonstrate the power of the OER repository Connexions. This booklet, in addition to being a description of the Open Education Cup serves as a mini tutorial on OER and Connexions and includes a set of sample modules demonstrating of the capabilities of Connexions. The booklet is just a snapshot in time of what was available online. This printed collection was created using QOOP's on-demand publishing process supported by Connexions, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional textbook.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
