Offer: NSF Unidata Science Gateway JupyterHub Resources Available for Spring 2024 Courses

Jupyterhub

Since 2018, NSF Unidata has been offering JupyterHub resources tailored to the instructional requirements of university atmospheric science classes through the Science Gateway project. In that time, educators at 22 different universities have been able to take advantage of cloud-based resources to access pre-configured computational notebooks for learning and teaching objectives. NSF Unidata has provided these services through semester-long classes at universities and at Python workshops at venues such as AMS.

For the Spring 2024 term, NSF Unidata is once again offering universities (or individual instructors) access to cloud-based JupyterHub servers tailored to the requirements of university atmospheric science courses and workshops. NSF Unidata will work with you to customize the technologies and data requirements for your class. By using the NSF Unidata Science Gateway, instructors can add Jupyter notebooks used in their coursework to a dedicated JupyterHub hosted using NSF 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.

(For more information about using JupyterHub resources in the NSF Unidata Science Gateway, see the original article: Offer: Unidata Science Gateway JupyterHub Resources Available for Remote-Learning Situations.)

With the NSF Unidata Science Gateway's recent transition to the NSF Jetstream 2 cloud, we can now offer experimental Dask- and GPU-enabled JupyterHub systems, which can better support machine learning or HPC-like scenarios. Note while these capabilities are still experimental, we have gained significant experience in their use during 2023 and feel confident in offering them. If you are willing to collaborate, we would be happy to explore these new offerings for your class.

NSF Unidata has the resources to support a limited number of university courses for the Spring 2024 term on a first-come, first-served basis. If you teach a course in atmospheric science or a related discipline and you or your department are interested in having NSF Unidata set up a JupyterHub for your use during that time, please use our Jupyterhub Request Form to start a conversation with the Science Gateway support team.

Also, please note the following caveats:

  • Logins to the JupyterHub server will be based on a GitHub mechanism (OAuth). As a result, each user must have a GitHub account. (GitHub registration is free.)
  • The JupyterHub servers created as part of this program will only be available through the semester, and will be removed afterwards. NSF Unidata hopes to be able to provide additional resources in future semesters as well; just ask us and we'll do our best to make arrangements.
  • NSF Unidata's resources in the Jetstream cloud are limited. We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but depending on the volume we may have to establish limits.

There is no cost to universities, departments, instructors, or students to take advantage of NSF Unidata's Science Gateway resources. If you have questions about any of these details, please feel free to contact support-gateway@unidata.ucar.edu for clarification.
