Maker Profile: Supercomputing Challenge

Supercomputing Challenge

Supercomputing Challenge is a non profit where mid and high schoolers get a chance to make a difference in their community or in real science and math NOW!

The Mission of the Supercomputing Challenge is to teach teams of middle and high schools students how to use powerful computers to analyze, model and solve real world problems.

Supercomputing Challenge teams tackle a range of interesting problems to solve. The most successful projects address a topic that holds great interest for the team. In recent years, ideas for projects have come from Astronomy, Geology, Physics, Ecology, Mathematics, Economics, Sociology, and Computer Science. It is very important that the problem a team chooses is what we call “real world” and not imaginary. A “real world” problem has measurable components. We use the term Computational Science to refer to science problems that we wish to solve and explain using computer models. See their website’s science projects page for details and examples.

Model rocketry is an extremely rewarding combination of designing,
building, launching, and recovering entry level to high power rockets.
Whether your interest lies in launching small rockets with an “A”
motor, very large “level three” motored rockets, or anything in
between, you are certainly welcome to join us! Simply show up at one
of our meetings or launches, which are free and open to the public.
Guests and observers are always welcome! :-)

Our club website, www.arsabq.org has map and directions to
the launch site, club schedules, archives of videos and pictures of
launches, and many links to other rocketry sites.

At the Mini-Maker Faire, the Albuquerque Rocket Society will present
a talk: Introduction to Model Rocketry. We will also have a booth
with rockets on display, handouts, and a paper-rocket making activity
for the kids.
