The Challenge was my first "real" experience as a team leader, real in the sense that it actually resembled the leadership I have done later in the "real" world. Looking back, I did a number of things poorly, especially relating to time management. However the fact that I was able to lead a team to victory in the challenge helped give me confidence to continue taking on leadership roles and building my technical leadership skills to where they are today. - Thomas D., Eldorado High, 2004.
The Supercomputing Challenge Archive
The New Mexico High School Supercomputing Challenge began in
1990. Archives exist for many of the past Challenges. In 2001, the Challenge
merged with the Adventures in Supercomputing to become the Adventures in
Supercomputing Challenge, or AiS Challenge. In 2005 the name was shortened to
just the Supercomputing Challenge.
