Faculty, please announce this FREE summer opportunity to your students!

The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) will offer a FREE online workshop for undergraduate students (e.g.... computer science, geophysics, geology, earth science, math, physics, engineering, etc.) that want to develop scientific computing skills while exploring the field of seismology. New for 2022, graduate students will also be admitted! The goals for the workshop are to increase participants'...

Knowledge, skills, and interest in seismology and scientific computing (e.g. Linux, GMT, SAC, Python/Obspy, Jupyter Notebooks),
Self-efficacy in using seismic data, and
Competitiveness in the application process for graduate school, summer internships, or professional jobs.
Based on previous workshops, 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 to include in their professional portfolio.

Registration Closes on May 22, 2022
