I have a son who's just finished his first year as a physics undergrad. As you can imagine, I occasionally pass along a link or two to him pointing to stuff on the web I think he might find particularly interesting or useful. Thinking on that fact, I surmised that perhaps other science students might find those links interesting or useful as well. Hence, this series of posts here on the blog.
By necessity and circumstance, the items I've chosen will be influenced by my son's choice of major and my own interest in the usefulness of computational approaches to science and of social media for outreach and professional development.
- A Very Short History Of Data Science
- Geometry, A Love Story
- Have a Contingency Plan (advice to people thinking about grad school)
- Tackling Productivity Challenges
- An Open Letter to Science Students and Science Teachers
- How to Give a Killer Presentation
