Santa Fe students take top prize at Challenge

-A A +A

Meghan Hill and Katelynn James of Santa Fe’s Monte del Sol Charter Sol took the top prize in the 25th New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge Tuesday at Los Alamos National Laboratory for their research project.
The title of the winning project was “Using Concentrated Heat Systems to Shock the P53 Protein to Direct Cancer into Apoptosis.”
Their project, which posited that using nanotechnology robots can kill cancer cells without damaging healthy cells, also won several other awards in the challenge.
“The goal of the yearlong event is to teach student teams how to use powerful computers to analyze, model and solve real-world problems,” said David Kratzer of Los Alamos’ High Performance Computer Systems group, and executive director of the Supercomputing Challenge.
“Participating students improve their understanding of technology by developing skills in scientific inquiry, modeling, computing, communications and teamwork.”
The Albuquerque Academy trio of Carl Cherne, Mark Swiler and Jason Watlington took second place for their research, “Popuation Fluctuation in Ecosystems,” which studied interactions between organisms and answers the question of how wild animal populations fluctuate.
