Students in the Computational Methods course in the Neuroscience major at American University learn about core methods for open source science each fall. In past years, we have focused on learning Python for data analysis, methods for 3D printing, and using Arduino to build simple experimental rigs and run experiments. With the pandemic, it was necessary to focus on programming, but we retained a project on open source tools as featured on OpenBehavior as a final project. The students did a great job writing about a number of projects that we have been planning to post about, and starting this week we will begin sharing their posts with the community. The students have approved having their content shared, and we excited to have them participate in the project.
