BOISE -- There is good news on the academic front at Boise State.

The school received a grant to build a new instrument that will help them access and analyze data generated by Boise State researchers.

The $555,000 grant from the National Science Foundation will replace their current system seen here, and allow 10 to 20 times faster processing of computational science and engineering problems.

"This instrument is basically going to help us tackle much larger problems with the added capacity and we're going to be able to do these problems in a shorter period of time," said Boise State Professor Inanc Senocak.

The new system will have a much larger display and be in a theater style room for 40 to 60 people.   

Researchers also plan to make this cyber-infrastructure accessible to high-school science, technology, engineering, and math scholars through outreach activities.
