I am also a big fan of conda environments, essentially having an environment for any given research project.

It is possible to make each and everyone of these environments available to Jupyter so that when you click on the new button you can decide which environment to use:

Having installed Jupyter in the folk_theorem environment, here is how you make that in the dropdown menu:

python -m ipykernel install --user --name folk_theorem --display-name "Folk Theorem"
