Coppell Independent School District is an active participating member in the World Community Grid. The purpose of the World Community Grid is to create the world’s largest public computing grid to benefit humanity. Grid technology takes advantage of the massive computing power and allows both public and non-profit organizations to do research. This cumulative computing power from across the world allows research to be completed faster and reduces the length of time that it takes to do research from years to months.
