The Supercomputing Challenge will go on!
Despite many other STEM competitions having to cancel,
we have decided to pioneer a new alternative and to move
our student final presentations to a remote, virtual platform.
This will not only allow them to be honored for their hard work
over the past year but it will also give them an opportunity to
practice remote collaboration, which is clearly an important
skill in this current environment.
Our students are using the same tools to “work from home” which prepares them for:
colleges and universities where online learning is becoming more common
and needs practice to be successful.
Future jobs where professionals conducting vital work, such as for the
national laboratories and other research institutions to understand and
fight COVID-19, have teams of researchers from across the globe working
on the same project.
The teams and judges from across the state will meet using the same video conferencing software.
In the past, teachers have often been our main point of contact for student
teams but with school campuses being closed, we have had to rely on communicating
directly with students. While this has been fairly successful, there are still gaps.
Please help us spread the word and tell the teams we have not been able to contact:

For help in resuming work on their projects.
