Jupyter notebooks are interactive scripts (commonly Python) in a web-application that are starting to be used for teaching purposes in both undergraduate and graduate student classes at universities across the United States. Example Jupyter notes for civil engineering courses are compiled within a Community Data folder entitled, "Jupyter Notebooks for Civil Engineering Courses". Students can access and work with these notebooks through the DesignSafe JupyterHub or download them to use locally.
A range of K-12 lesson plans, previously available on the NEEShub, have been ported over to DesignSafe and compiled in a Community Data folder entitled, "Legacy NEES K-12 Learning Materials". The materials can be used as teaching modules containing numerous lessons appropriate for educating K-12 students in fundamental engineering and natural hazard principles. Teachers and students can sort through and download these learning materials organized by contributor and grade level.
DesignSafe is engaging K-12 students through interactive education and outreach programs. CODE @ TACC: CONNECTED is an innovative and exciting summer program that lets students explore where coding meets communities. Students will create models of solutions for social and societally relevant problems that use networked sensors and the cloud. Learn how data can be used to tell a science story. All current 10th through 11th grade high school students are welcome to apply. Thirty students will be accepted and housed in a campus dorm at The University of Texas (UT) at Austin. Students are expected to participate in CODE @ TACC Connected until the conclusion of the program. All students will be invited to participate in quarterly Back @ TACC STEM workshops upon completion of the program.
