Middle School Participation in the Supercomputing Challenge

We are collaborating with Project Guts, an NSF grant being implemented in Santa Fe. Check it out at http://projectguts.org

We will be working with StarLogo TNG (The Next Generation) to introduce programming. Middle schools students do not need to bring a proposal because they are going to work on four units throughout the year that will teach them about complexity, agent based modeling and place based or community based science.

Each student, or pair or small group, needs to bring five questions so that they will be prepared to interview a group of scientists at the Meet the Scientist Session. Brainstorm with your friends about good questions so that you can learn about the scientist, about his or her work, about their backgrounds, about what got them interested in science, and other questions that will help you understand what got them to where they are and what it takes to be a scientist.

Middle Schoolers will make three presentations: The first will be in December, the Second in February, and the final in April. The December presentation is written and explains what has been accomplished with one of the units. In February and April, teams will make presentations to a group of judges.
