EDGE Reach will run June 9 – 30, 2021. This program will prepare participants to enter an increasingly computational research community and workforce. Furthermore, the program will provide the EDGE Reach cohort with a wider community of women mathematicians, who can provide support and career opportunities. Lastly, participants will practice collaborative, online learning, an essential skill in our changing work/study practices.

The program will consist of:

  • MATLAB mini-course (3 synchronous classes)
  • Machine Learning course (6 asynchronous lectures)
  • 4-6 problem sets in Machine Learning
  • Collaborative problem sessions (4 synchronous sessions)

Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate from the EDGE Foundation.
