Tools of the Trade: Boot Camp for STEM Researchers
Join University Libraries for a half-day workshop for graduate students and other advanced researchers in FSU's STEM fields. Please bring a laptop to participate.
Intro to ChemDraw (10am-11am)
ChemDraw is a powerful tool that allows users to create and edit chemical structures for use in publications, classroom materials, and research. In this workshop, an introduction to some of the basic features of ChemDraw will be provided. Attendees will learn how to draw simple chemical structures and how to use various tools within ChemDraw to manipulate those structures.
Exploring the Open Science Framework (11:15am-12:15pm)
The Open Science Framework is a free and open-source collaborative project management platform for scientists to manage their workflow across the entire research lifecycle. This workshop will explore features in the Open Science Framework including management and access control to files and data, connecting the OSF to resources like GoogleDrive and Zotero, as well as OSF Preprints and Preregistrations.
Intro to SQL (1pm-1:45pm)
SQLite Manager is a free tool that helps you put all of that data into a relational database where you can analyze your information without fear of accidentally changing the data. Learn how to improve quality control of data entry, run queries of datasets, and how to aggregate your data. This workshop will include an overview of SQL queries and structure using SQLite Manager.
Data Analysis with MatLab (2pm-3pm)
MATLAB is a great programming language for solving problems in various engineering, scientific, and mathematical fields – especially when working with matrices and arrays. This workshop will explore introductory concepts including: working within the desktop environment, creating and manipulating matrices and arrays, and importing and exporting data. We will also explore tools for data analysis and visualization.
