CoCo Program 2024

Who are we? 

CoCo targets undergraduate, graduate, and early-career researchers looking to advance their knowledge in Python and science communication. Students interested in learning how to communicate their findings via effective and innovative communication strategies in both English and Spanish. 

US-based candidates from Latin, Hispanic, and Caribbean backgrounds with basic conversational English and Spanish knowledge will take priority into consideration for admittance to the program.

GeoHackeo 2024

The GeoHackeo 2024 is the final program event. For a week, students will work in groups for 4-5 hours a day to develop a research project. They will come up with research questions and a methodology to test their hypothesis. At then end of the week, students will present their findings to a general audience.
