Quantitative Methods Workshop

A seven-day intensive workshop designed to introduce students to quantitative tools and programming languages used to analyze experimental data in biology and neuroscience.

Joey Velez-Ginorio

The Quantitative Methods Workshop was an incredible experience. I was able to design and teach a workshop on Python, and test strategies for communicating these ideas in a way that resonates with students from many different fields: computer science, chemistry, biology, etc. One student even emailed me after and said the workshop inspired them to enroll in an introductory programming course. These things make the experience so rewarding, and I look forward to teaching again at the 2018 workshop.
