Welcome to the Project GUTS - Supercomputing Challenge Summer Teacher Institute

Thanks to a Google CS4HS grant and LANS (Los Alamos National Security) at LANL, we are holding our fifth annual joint professional development at New Mexico Tech, from July 15th - 27th. Move into Baca Hall any time after 3 PM, Sunday, to register and then we will go over to Fidel Center for an opening BBQ and introductions at 5:30. Our second week will be held regionally and online.
