What else should you know?
The speaker at our October brown bag, Sarah Stevens, included Mozilla Science Lab as a resource for starting your own computational study group so we were excited to share it with our readers. It has great pre-planned lessons for different programming languages as well as field specific lesson plans across a range of disciplines perfect for the peer learning format.
The Mozilla Science Lab also has fellowships for researchers eager to help develop in the areas of open source and data sharing.
