    Please reach out to with any questions.


    Creating Visualizations with Python
    Monday, April 11th
    6:00 – 7:30 PM

    When working with data, a visualization such as a bar or pie chart, line graph, or scatterplot can summarize and communicate information effectively. Charts and visualizations can augment an argument laid out in a paper, report, tweet, or blog post.

    In this 90-minute workshop, we\’ll work with a small data set in CSV format, creating a pie chart, bar chart, line chart, and scatterplot. We will also change the presentation of these charts, and learn how to export them to a file. Though no prior experience with Python is necessary, some familiarity with Python and/or Pandas basics may be helpful, so you may wish to view the recording of the introduction to Pandas workshop held earlier in the semester.


    Introduction to Modern HTML and CSS
    Monday, April 25th
    6:00 – 7:30 PM

    HTML is a markup language that describes the structure of documents on the web, and CSS determines the presentation of these documents. Knowing HTML and CSS allows you to create or edit web pages and websites, and is useful when working with modern tools for web development such as content management systems (such as WordPress), frontend frameworks (such as Bootstrap), and static site generators (such as Jekyll).

    In this 90-minute workshop, we will learn how HTML elements are defined, how CSS rules apply to HTML elements, and how the box model determines how web pages are laid out. We\’ll also incorporate a modern frontend framework, Bootstrap 5, and discuss how a grid system can create responsive (mobile-friendly) websites. No prior experience is required.
