The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) will again offer a FREE workshop for undergraduate students (e.g.... computer science, geophysics, geology, earth science, math, physics, engineering, etc), or recent graduates who will be starting graduate school in the fall of 2021, that want to develop scientific computing skills while exploring the field of seismology. The goals for the workshop are to increase participants'...
- Knowledge, skills, and interest in seismology and scientific computing,
- Self-efficacy in using seismic data, and
- Competitiveness in the application process for graduate school, summer internships, or professional jobs.
The workshop runs from May 31 to August 20, 2021. Based on the 2020 workshop, participants should expect to invest approximately 5-6 hours per week including participating in the weekly webinar (or watching the recording).

At the end of the workshop participants will receive a performance report certificate via email. However, to accommodate registrants who wish to seek university credit for participating, two optional pathways have been developed.

Feedback from past participants…
"Because the workshop was so well developed, the activities were interesting and well guided. The professors were always very helpful and the communication was always good. Thanks!”

"I benefited a lot from this and would encourage people to give this workshop a try. It’s amazing the things you can create. I thought the Jupyter notebook was really cool!"

"This workshop was run fantastically and taught new concepts, but was not set up in a way that was meant to be overly challenging or stress-inducing. Great for people with little coding experience, all info was built up from the base level.”

"Thought out and indepth real world exercises with guidance but room for learning and making mistakes"
