Team Number: 091 School Name: RAMAH HIGH SCHOOL Area of Science: Project Title: Project Abstract: http://mode.lanl.k12.nm.us/97.98/abstracts/091.html Interim Report: http://mode.lanl.k12.nm.us/97.98/interims/091.html Final Report: http://mode.lanl.k12.nm.us/97.98/finalreports/091/finalreport.html
Our problem deals with the above information being compiled into a very complex program (hopefully one that requires the use of the supercomputer!) that will determine what factors, such as water supply, employment oppertunities, natural resourses and other such factors, that if changed will affect the population of Ramah. We feel that this is a worthy project that could benifit town planners of Ramah. With this program, one or more changes could be put into our "town" (the one created by our program) to see what will happen. Changes would most likely include population fluxuation, weather fluxuation, water supply fluxuation, and other fluxuations.
The way we figure it, we will be able to use the supercomputer because there will be immense number crunching, that would normally take several days on a regular PC, as opposed to mere seconds on the Cray. We really don't have a lot of experince with a supercomputer, and will probably need some help determining if the Cray is needed or not.
For results we expect to gain world popularity and emmense fame. Not really =) but we have talked to Bill Clinton and he said "Ya'all gotcha one real nice project here." Actully, on a serious note, we talked to members of Ramah's water and sanitation district (close enough to Bill Clinton) and they said that they would be able to use this program to there benifit. Thank you for your time and support.
