Workshops

Here we have compiled a list of the workshops we run, organized by related subject. Within a subject, the workshops are in chronological order of when they are run. Any workshop that does not have a planned date is listed at the bottom. This page will be periodically updated as workshops are created and run.

Each workshop will have a summary explaining what it is about, as well as link all the materials and resources we have created. If a workshop is upcoming, we will display the information necessary to attend.

Important:

The workshop materials link to a google form. Upon completion of this form, the link to materials will be provided. This is so we can properly determine how many people use these materials. Accurate counts help us determine what to run in the future and receive funding to run such events. No personal data is collected during this process.

Upcoming Workshops:

  • Intro to Python
  • Intro to Latex
  • Web-Dev Month
    • Throughout February – see event for details
  • Competitive Machine Learning
    • mid-March

Available Workshops by Subject

  • Back to Basics
    • Come check out our new workshop series called Back to Basics! This is a series of talks on COSC, MATH, PHYS, and STATS that acts as a refresher on fundamental material. It’s always easy to forget basic, key concepts over the summer and these workshops will help your mind transition back into school! You can attend them all, or just the subjects relevant to you.
    • Materials:
  • Intro to GIT
  • Intro to Python
    • Come learn the basics of Python!
      The first hour is a no programming experience needed tutorial. This will go over basic calculations, logic, and functions.
      After we will switch into a more in depth, high level workshop that will reach more advanced techniques. Experienced programmers are suggested to join at this mark.

  • COVID-19 Math Model
    • A presentation by Dr. Rebecca Tyson and Dr. Dean Karlen to learn how to build a COVID-19 model! We’ll start with basic disease modelling theory, deriving the magic reproductive number that has been talked about in the news, and learning what “flatten the curve” means mathematically. Then we’ll move on to more complex disease models, finishing with COVID-19 specific models for BC and other jurisdictions. Bring your questions!
