The Co-Design Summer School assembles a small group of multi-disciplinary students to collaborate on a single problem,. They work together on an interdisciplinary problem of interest to the Laboratory.  

The goal of the summer school is to release an open source proxy application and publish the work. To achieve this goal, the students are allowed to take the project in almost any direction, with the freedom to adjust as the project progresses.
