Offer: Unidata Science Gateway JupyterHub Resources Available for Spring 2021 Courses

Jupyterhub

In the spring of 2020, Unidata made an offer of resources through the Science Gateway project in order to facilitate online learning in response to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic. Since that time, nearly 440 users — mostly undergraduates in atmospheric science programs — have been able to take advantage of cloud-based resources to access pre-configured computational notebooks for learning and teaching objectives.

For the spring 2021 term, Unidata is once again offering to provide universities (or individual instructors) access to cloud-based JupyterHub servers tailored to the needs of university atmospheric science courses and workshops. By using the Unidata Science Gateway, instructors can add Jupyter notebooks used in their coursework to a dedicated JupyterHub hosted using Unidata’s resources in the NSF Jetstream cloud. Once logged in to the JupyterHub, individual students access pre-configured computing environments that allow them to work with the notebooks interactively, making and saving their own alterations to existing notebooks or creating their own new notebooks.

Unidata Staff at AGU Fall 2020 Meeting

Well, we all know 2020 has been an odd year, and of course that extends to Unidata's participation in the American Geophysical Union 2020 Fall meeting, December 7-11 2020, in cyberspace. No one from the entire UCAR organization is travelling this conference season, nor will members of the Unidata staff be presenting virtual talks or posters at the fall AGU meeting.

That doesn't mean we don't want to chat with you about your data and software needs, about how you're holding your classes or doing your research in this unusual year. We'll have a “virtual booth” set up with a video networking space using the Airmeet platform. Staff members will be available to talk during the AGU's preferred exhibit hall.

For 2021, a total of $100,000 is available for awards; proposals for amounts up to $20,000 will be considered.

Past recipients of Unidata equipment awards have used the grants to procure equipment for data sharing, to create interactive data visualization laboratories, and to encourage the use of Unidata software packages in research and education.
