Summer Thesis Research Table

10:30 am - 11:30 am Frost Library, 1st floor research tables

The thesis research table is a regular meet-up for students who are starting work on a thesis project to find support from each other and from instructional staff. Each week will focus on an aspect of the research and writing process; topics will be determined by the group. These might be instructional activities, discussions, work sessions or whatever works for the group. Donuts and coffee will be served! Drop in or attend regularly. Hosted by Blake Doherty of Frost Library and Jessica Kem of the Writing Center.

Students Only

Scientific Programming with Python

Python is a freely distributable high-level programming language that has become very popular for everything from scripting applications and web-page generation to solving scientific problems. It shares many basic characteristics with languages like Mathematica, Matlab and Labview, and has an extensive set of numerical and scientific modules. In this class we will use Python to build instructions describing a scientific problem, and solve it using the college computing cluster.

This workshop is in three parts:

Monday through Wednesday, June 18 – 20, 6–9 p.m.; light dinner provided at 5:30 p.m.
(additional meetings may be arranged if there is interest).
