1. Jupyter notebook/ESIPhub - meeting organization

  • Dan will have a Goto Meeting set up - it will be posted in the Sched.
  • Full schedule:
  • 2-3:30 Tuesday ET January 15, 2019
  • Goal(s) of winter session:
    • Outline of summer workshop
    • Learning objectives of interacting with Jupyter:
      • We want teachers to have a positive experience slightly modifying code (within a Jupyter) notebook to see that it’s not magic ... that they could do some simple code hacking to be able to show .. maps/ remote sensed images / layering on data/ make a graph (animate the graph).
      • Give them something to do with their classrooms
      • What do we want teachers to be able do?
        • Displaying visualizations?
        • Make plots?
        • Animate the plots?
        • Change/ filter / cluster? predictions?
        • To do: collect simple examples together - or items that could be modified to be simplified & streamlined

(could I (Shelley) grab the Python code from Chuck on volcanic ash ‘bombs’)
