Required forms

The following forms need to be filled out by each participants and brought to the event.


Sandia National Labs will host a tour day for participants in the Supercomputing Challenge on Monday March 20th, 2006. Students are eligible to come to the tour day if their team has submitted an interim report and participated in the Project Evaluation judging. Participants MUST be US citizens.

Space is limited to 50 Challenge participants and registration will be on a first come first served basis. There is financial support available for lodging for those schools traveling long distances (so they can spend the night on Sunday). We will meet off-base and be bused on base with Sandia Lab transportation. We will meet at 8:00 AM (We will let you know of the location in a later email). We will be finished by 3:15 PM. Lunch will be provided.

Please coordinate your participation through your sponsoring teacher so there is registration form per school.

The following information is needed for every participant:

Name, Team Number, Social Security Number, Date of Birth

School Name
School Address

The Social Security Number and Date of Birth are critical as they are needed to get visitor badges for access to Sandia National Labs Technical Areas. In addition, all participants wishing to go on the tour MUST have a photo ID to be admitted to Kirtland Air Force base and be badged by Sandia National Labs.

Please only make a reservation if you will be able to attend as space is limited. I need your reservation by March 6, 2006. Email the registration information to sandiatour06@challenge.nm.org
