High Performance Computing
Over the past several years, Rio Rancho High students have found
greater success when they ask adults to consult instead of mentor. The
term mentor implies a large and long time commitment. The term
consultant suggests that the assistance is required only when teams
solicit it. To busy professionals, a time commitment with
well-defined limits may be appealing and offer a welcome opportunity
for professional community service.
