Stream: Lean for teaching

Topic: Lean club student org

I usually see Lean being taught in courses or workshops. I’m curious if anyone has organized a “Lean club” student organization at their university? Something like a chess club or reading group for folks of different levels to gather and learn Lean / write proofs.

@Yaël Dillies and/or @Bhavik Mehta organize one (or used to) at Cambridge I believe

James Gallicchio (Jul 11 2023 at 21:53):

we had/have one (or two?) at CMU :) might start more next semester

Sure, Kevin Buzzard has been doing it since 2017!

It's still going, every Thursday during Imperial's term 5-8. Won't start again until Oct though.

Ed, Wojciech and I started one about four years ago, I think Yaël runs it these days during term time

Okay, thanks everyone! Any tips? Is it just student-led after getting a critical mass of interested students? What kinds of things happen at these gatherings?

My club nights are random, sometimes there are a ton of people working on something, sometimes it's just a few people having a chat.
