Webinar Description

Unlock your students' potential to use Earth data in this workshop. Explore the opportunities for scalable and reproducible analysis of Earth data via novice-friendly Python activities, which foster algorithmic thinking and code and data literacy for students who will gain skills applicable to both the job market and research. Learn how to implement these activities in your own classrooms and discover how computational activities make geoscience education more inclusive.


  1. Explore how data analysis using code can enhance your geoscience classroom and witness the potential for fostering algorithmic thinking and code literacy among your students.
  2. Demonstrate how to install/access notebooks and other open-source Python tools and equip instructors to seamlessly integrate these tools into their teaching environments.
  3. Discuss with participants barriers to including computational elements into classrooms and brainstorm solutions to increase awareness and adoption of coding activities.
