Public Lab has received support for students to work on Public Lab software projects via Google's Summer of Code program -- 2017 is our fourth great year of open source coding! In 2017 we also joined the Rails Girls Summer of Code program.

This is a key way that we are able to develop our collaborative platform (this site) as well as other Public Lab coding projects.

2017's program has wrapped up; [Rails Girls Summer of Code ends at the end of September. Please see (and update) our Ideas page to start preparing for 2018 -- it's never too early!

Activities

Add an activity  or request an activity guide you don't see listed

Activities should include a materials list, costs and a step-by-step guide to construction with photos. Learn what makes a good activity here.


Mentoring

What does it mean to be a mentor? Mentors basically check in with a student once per week roughly from May-August, and offer some project management guidance... the plots-dev list can provide code-specific input so we share the burden of specific technical support.

We do occasional chat or skype sessions, and mentors rely on each other quite a bit, on the plots-gsoc list. Students often need project and time management guidance more than code guidance, and also need to be occasionally reminded to ask for input on the community lists when they get into trouble.

https://flossmanuals.net/GSoCMentoring/ also has a lot of resources on mentoring.
