The NSF funded project (NSF Grant No. 1829707) FIRST-HEP (Framework for Integrated Research Software   Training in High Energy Physics) strives to create a highly visible model and framework for future software training evolution within the U.S. and international HEP (High Energy Physics) communities. Its plan includes a dedicated outreach activity on  software training to the local Puerto Rico STEM teachers. The most effective way for FIRST-HEP to reach K-12 students and parents is to train teachers in the basics of computing and its vital role in science.

In the data camp K-12 teachers  would analyze real dataset from the CMS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and interpret their findings  by making plots. This quantitative and software experience will help build skills that can be very useful in classroom and lab settings of a Physics course.

For those registered please take the Survey and go through Data Camp Intro notebook via the links on the left menu of this page.
