In partnership with the West Big Data Innovation Hub, the eScience Institute hosted a hands-on Data Carpentry Instructor Training Mar. 22 – 23 in the WRF Data Science Studio. Participant teams hailed from across the western region representing universities, government, and community organizations in Alaska, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and California.

All have now been certified to host Data Carpentry workshops for their local communities, creating a multiplicative effect for data science training opportunities across the western region.
