Athena Digital Design Academy and Community of Practice
The Athena Center and Athena Digital Design Academy (ADDA), now in partnership with the Vagelos Computational Science Center, are happy to announce two new offerings supporting students who want to apply their coding skills to projects.
(1) An online web development and design course in the fall for students of all majors and alum.
(2) An Athena Center community of practice to apply your web development skills. More info will be posted here in the coming weeks: athenacenter.barnard.edu/communities-practice.
ADDA is gauging interest in both (1) their non-graded, self-directed but still community-oriented, coding classes and (2) weekly gatherings in which members of the community of practice would meet to work on their projects. In these weekly gatherings, led by ADDA's Student Advisory Board, they’ll discuss what tech for good looks like, technology trends, and how students can use their skills to help build a better world.

Learning from Learners: Designing a Data Science Curriculum- Call for Applications External Inbox
The Data For Good Scholars program connects student volunteers to organizations and individuals working for the social good whose projects have developed a need for data science expertise. As "real world" problems with real world data, these projects are excellent opportunities for students to learn how data science is practiced outside of the university setting and to learn how to work effectively with people for whom data science sits outside of their subject area. Data For Good projects are primarily volunteer, although one student in each may be given a stipend to coordinate communication.
This project is an opportunity to gain hands-on experience teaching data science in an advanced secondary-school environment. This fall, you will act as a teaching assistant (mostly remote, but with some on-site requirements) for a new introductory data science class that will be offered to advanced secondary-school students through the Bard College Early High School program. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the curriculum for this unique course, as well as learn firsthand from this diverse student body about how data science instruction can attract and engage learners of all backgrounds.
