The Ohio Supercomputer Center has announced the names of Ohio high school students and teachers who are attending Ohio's first STEM Academy in Computational Science and Engineering this summer.

Upper Arlington student Nathan Malkin was among those selected to attend.

Participants learn how to build, use and test computer models of many interesting phenomena. The academy consists of short lectures, individual project assignments, physical experiments and data gathering, as well as a capstone group final project.

The program will continue through the academic year with mentoring and additional work for the students and two Saturday events focusing on more sophisticated approaches to modeling and simulation. Student participants will receive three semester hours of undergraduate credit and at least a half credit from their high schools.

Sam Luffey of Upper Arlington has received a Robert S. Garek High School Merit Scholarship, given at the Marburn Academy in honor of its founder.

The merit award is given to students who demonstrate significant academic and personal growth and who contribute to the overall Marburn community.
