Get Involved[edit | edit source]

Current Projects[edit | edit source]

Out 2 Lunch Webinar Series[edit | edit source]

10 minute demonstrations of cool Earth Science data tools or resources.

Exploration of Coding "book-club"[edit | edit source]

ESIP Education Committee is starting a book club-style exploration of coding. The purpose is to explore the hype behind Hour of Code and other coding projects (Girls who code, etc) to find something we might harness as content for ESIP education workshops.

Every other week, following our Out2Lunch presentations, we'll spend ~45 minutes discussing what we've learned from the week's assignment. Our first session will be this Wednesday, Nov 1, immediately following the Out2Lunch presentation. We'll continue meeting for as long (or short) as it seems useful.
