We are so excited to announce the launch of CodeAMNH, our new computational science courses for 9th and 10th grade high school students at the American Museum of Natural History! These new high school classes explore using coding to understand the natural world better.
This fall, we will be offering:
No other natural force compares in sheer power with earthquakes. They represent nearly instantaneous releases of energy that can tear apart landscapes, which may enormously impact human civilizations in the surrounding areas. But why do earthquakes happen? In this course, you will learn and use fundamental Python programming concepts and exploratory data analysis techniques to track and visualize major earthquakes while simulating tectonic plate boundary movement and seismic wave models. (Beginner-friendly; no coding experience required!)
Each class will meet twice a week for 8 weeks. We will be offering a completely virtual session and an in-person session so you can pick what works best for you! The cost of the course is $1,500; however, financial aid is available. Scholarships are limited, and the deadline to apply for tuition assistance is September 17, 2021.
We recommend that students who have previously taken Coding Quakes at AMNH, should not sign up for CodeAMNH: Earthquakes. If you have any questions about the content or a scholarship for the class please email us at [email protected]
Join us to develop new coding and computational thinking skills that can be applied to any of your interests including music, art, and, of course, science!
