As supercomputers have become more powerful, simulation, artificial intelligence, visualization, and related technologies have become a part of our daily lives. HLRS organizes and participates in a variety of activities intended to increase public understanding of what high-performance computing is, why it is important for science and engineering, and how it affects us.
This education enrichment program, funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research, and Art, offers motivated students, teachers, and the general public a variety of free events focusing on computer simulation and mathematical modeling.

HLRS opens its doors each summer the University of Stuttgart's annual campus-wide open house, which welcomes visitors of all ages with an extensive program. Visitors can tour HLRS's computing room, experience recent applications of virtual reality in our CAVE facility, and talk with HLRS staff to learn more about our latest activities.
HLRS participates in the nationwide Girls' Day program, which encourages girls to consider careers in IT, the sciences, engineering, and the skilled trades. Participants receive a hands-on introduction to computer hardware and programming, and receive tours of HLRS's computing room and CAVE 3D visualization facility, among other activities.
