The Molecular Sciences Software Institute (the MolSSI) is an NSF-funded institute that aims to improve software, education, and training the computational molecular sciences, a broad field that includes chemistry, physics, materials science, and molecular biology. The MolSSI Education program has a wide range of educational resources, including in-person workshops, webinars, video tutorials, and online curriculum, that teach fundamental concepts in programming, computing, and software development. Students can access the resources for self-paced learning, or faculty can use these resources as a starting point to develop discipline-specific curriculum for their courses. This presentation will highlight educational resources from the MolSSI and give examples of faculty using them in all levels of undergraduate curriculum.
