The New Mexico Supercomuting Challenge awarded dozens of prizes during an award ceremony Tuesday morning.
Awards were based on presentations of research to a team of volunteer judges on Monday at the J. Robert Oppenheimer Study Center. Participants also discussed poster displays of their computing projects. Many students toured the laboratory’s supercomputing centers and heard talks and saw demonstrations by laboratory researchers.
A total of $63,000 in individual scholarships – $50,000 from Computer, Computational and Statistical Sciences (CCS) Division – were awarded.
The Supercomputing Challenge is open to any New Mexico high-school or middle-school student. More than 320 students from 25 schools around the state spent the school year researching scientific problems, developing sophisticated computer programs, and learning about computer science with mentors from the state’s national laboratories and other organizations.
