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.
Our Summer 2019 workshop will be a four-week Coding Institute for undergraduate students that will take place June 3-28, 2019, on the campus of Elizabeth City State University. The workshop will cover the core skills needed to be productive in the design and maintenance of science gateways. The program will be presented as short tutorials alternated with practical experiences, and all instruction will be 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. Ten participants will be selected for the Coding Institute. Participants of the Coding Institute will receive a weekly stipend of $500 plus funding for transportation and housing. All selected participants will be required to attend either the PEARC19 or the Gateways 2019 conference. Funding to attend both conferences will be provided by SGCI's Workforce Development.
