PlasmaPy Summer School 2024

The PlasmaPy community is excited to announce its inaugural summer school, which will be held from July 29 – August 1, 2024 at Bryn Mawr College. After introducing how to use PlasmaPy, this workshop will help participants learn how to contribute to an open source software project like PlasmaPy.


Monday, July 29 to Thursday, August 1


The summer school will be held at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA (about a 30 minute drive from central Philadelphia).


Monday through Wednesday will include structured learning opportunities and live tutorials. Thursday will be an optional unstructured day to work alongside other participants and talk with PlasmaPy contributors to apply the lessons learned earlier in the week.
