At the Climate Code Foundation we are hoping to take part in this year’s Google Summer of Code (GSoC). GSoC is a program in which Google sponsors students who contribute to open-source software projects. Each student works full-time for three months (late May to late August), mentored by experts from an organization such as the Foundation, and earns $5000.
If you are a student with programming experience and an interest in climate science, why not work with us over the summer to improve the public understanding of climate science?
The Foundation took part last year, and mentored three, student projects. All three projects were successful, and all three students presented work at the AMS annual meeting in New Orleans in January. The experience was very positive, and we are looking forward to repeating it.
We have an ideas page, listing several dozen ideas which could be developed into project proposals. If you have ideas of your own, we’d like to hear about those too.
If you are interested in participating as a student, then please get in touch.
