  • PICUP Back-to-School Webinar: Tools of the Trade

    Wednesday, August 12th at 7 PM EDT / 6 PM CDT / 5 PM MDT / 4 PM PDT

    Join us for a special back-to-school PICUP webinar where we'll briefly explore a number of free tools that are available to help you deliver computational activities in your physics courses:  Jupyter Notebooks (local and in the cloud), Spyder, Octave/Matlab, GlowScript/VPython, p5.js, and Excel/Google spreadsheets. After being introduced to these platforms, you'll be able to ask questions and schedule follow-up learning opportunities based on the platform(s) that interests you most.

    NOTE: The webinar will be recorded and posted on the PICUP site for viewing for those who are unable to attend the meeting on Wednesday, August 12.
