I have taught a variety of modules at the School of Physics and Astronomy.
As part of my teaching, I have developed a series of cloud-based Jupyter Python notebooks that introduce real data into the classroom. I use the SciServer platform, which enables the creation of hands-on labs based on SDSS data.
If you’re a student looks for teaching resources for a module you’re taking, you should look on the module’s Moodle pages. If you’re a student looking for research experience in developing educational tools using SciServer, please get in touch.
