Talk:SuperQuest

I added this text from the NCSA website archive. I believe this use is lawful because the NCSA appears to be a unit of the federal government of the United States (hence there would be no copyright in materials written by/for the NCSA).

My major concern is whether this information is wildly out-of-date; in fact, I seem to vaguely recall that SuperQuest ceased some time in the 1990s, or was transformed into a differently-named program.

I concur that the information is out-of-date. In the past few months, I have noticed that the NCSA has pulled the Superquest information off of their website. I was in one school group that was invited to the Superquest program in 1992 and was hired back in 1993 and 1994 to help out with the next two groups. The director of the Superquest program left soon thereafter and I believe the program died as a result.

plebbin and Ryanaxp: The information is not so much out-of-date as it should be re-written in a historical context. There are some still some extant articles that could be added as references, for example this article from Education Week. I'm not a particularly facile WikiPedia editor, or I would edit this myself. I was the elder member of a team of one Senior in High School and three Juniors that won the competition in 1988. Did ETA Systems even survive to donate any other ETA 10-P's? I seem to recall it was less than a year after the competition that CSC shuttered them. Happypete (talk) 13:24, 8 June 2008 (UTC)
