Recommended Level: High School and Up with an Aptitude for Algebra
Do you or your kids have interests in meteorology, microelectronics, science, computers, data, artificial intelligence, or machine learning?
I am releasing free micro-tutorials to increase students interests in these topic areas.
The micro-tutorials will employ a tool called a Jupyter Notebook. Jupyter Notebooks are documents used by data scientists and students to learn how to code and do all sorts of fun things with data. Check out the video.
Current Available Micro-Tutorials
- Micro-Tutorial #1 – Intro to Google’s Colaboratory
- Micro-Tutorial #2 – Introduction to Meteorology
- Micro-Tutorial #3 – Characteristics of Air
- Micro-Tutorial #4 – Light as Air? That’s heavy
