The Supercomputing Challenge
Summer Teacher Institute (STI)


This summer the Supercomputing Challenge will not have the usual two week STI (Summer Teacher Institute) training at NM Tech in Socorro. However, we plan to have a Professional Development (PD) workshop and an online course for the summer.

The workshops will be held in June and July. The structure will be as follows:
Opening PD: June 5th and 6th
Online PD: 8 weeks running June 8th to July 30th
Closing PD: July 31st and August 1st
The Opening and Closing PDs will be held in Albuquerque.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the registration form at:

See the June 5-6 schedule.

Location of the Workshops

The June 5-6 and July 31/August 1 workshops will be held at the UNM Science and Technology Park Rotunda which is located at 851 University St. Right near the Isotopes Ball Park. See:
It is located at the far right of the map, at the corner of Baseheart and University. Hence the rotunda. Park where the red circled P is on the map.

The primary goals of the Supercomputing Challenge Summer Teacher Institute are to:

  1. introduce teachers to complexity science and computational tools and methods,
  2. advance teachers' knowledge, understanding, and skills in Computer Science and STEM domains,
  3. prepare teachers to support Supercomputing Challenge teams, and
  4. provide ongoing support to teachers who will recruit and assist students in Computer Science and STEM endeavors.
