-A A +A

More than 200 New Mexico students and their teachers are expected for Los Alamos National Laboratory’s for the 25th annual New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge expo and awards ceremony.
“One of the goals of the year-long competition is to teach student teams how to use powerful computers to analyze, model and solve real-world problems,” said David Kratzer of LANL’s High Performance Computer Systems group, LANL’s coordinator of the Supercomputing Challenge. “Participating students improve their understanding of technology by developing skills in scientific inquiry, modeling, computing, communications and teamwork, and have fun doing it.”
The challenge is project-based learning geared to teaching a wide range of skills, such as research, writing, teamwork, time management, oral presentations and computer programming.
Any New Mexico middle-school or high-school student is eligible to enter.
While at LANL, students will present their projects and take part in tours, talks, and demonstrations with scientists.
Student projects will be recognized during an awards ceremony Tuesday from 9 a.m.-noon at the Church of Christ Auditorium, 2323 Diamond Drive in Los Alamos. More than $20,000 in scholarships will be awarded to student participants, along with many plaques and cash awards.
