Our experts share their knowledge in a range of one-day to multi-week workshops
Workforce Development offers workshops and other programs geared toward teaching students and educators about the use or development of science gateways. Some workshops are hosted at national conferences such as ADMI and NOBCChE and our own Gateways conference, while others are offered during the summer.
Each summer, we offer workshops that provide instruction about building and using gateways. In 2019, we offered a four-week Coding Institute on the campus of Elizabeth City State University. The workshop covered the core skills needed to be productive in the design and maintenance of science gateways. The program was presented as short tutorials alternated with practical experiences, and all instruction was done via live coding.
Eligible applicants are undergraduate students majoring in computer science or computer engineering (or related fields) who have an interest in the design and maintenance of science gateways. Participants of the Coding Institute receive a weekly stipend plus funding for transportation and housing.
