Ongoing Activities

Team project documentation

Team project documentation
All teams use contemporary platforms for project communication, documentation, code-sharing, and data management throughout the program. In addition to teaching essential skills, these provide a living document of prior work that new trainees can use to get up-and-running.

Science communication through media

Science communication through media
With each project, teams will create short videos, tutorials, and blog posts explaining the work for a lay audience. These documents will promote broader awareness of the science and its implications, and will provide important background information to new students entering the program.

And of course we have…

  • Weekly cross-disciplinary seminars with an online library of video talks in development.
  • Summer boot camps and tutorial workshops to get scientists quickly up and running on new tools.
  • A yearly conference and retreat to share completed work, meet with non-academic partners, and plan new projects.
