You can learn about previous STIs by browsing through our
archives. The STI for 2003 and 2004
will be especially useful. In 2004 our STI was online. The content
for the STIs in 2003 and 2004 are similar but the format for 2005
will be more like 2003 than 2004. The Syllabi are quite detailed.
Each summer we plan a two week institute for high school and
middle school teachers so that they can learn about the Challenge and
how to become a better Supercomputing Challenge TEACHER sponsor.
Participants plan and implement a project in the context of a
mini-Challenge. Getting to know and work with like-minded teachers
from around the state is a real benefit of this professional
development opportunity. Tours and recreation activities supplement
the curriculum and enhance the collaboration that is an essential
component of the Challenge.
