Learn data science - one of the fastest growing fields of CS
Participate in research projects utilizing data analysis
Receive mentorship from university faculty and PhDs
Increase college competitiveness
Data science is one of the world’s most sought after skills and has applications in nearly every field, from public health to artificial intelligence to business. This program offers an unprecedented opportunity for a select group of high school students to develop tangible technical skills and to work alongside professors and PhD candidates while conducting research utilizing their newly developed data analysis skills. This five-week program is divided into two parts. In Weeks 1-2, students are trained in data science, developing skills in data visualizations, data cleaning, and data analysis. In Weeks 3 - 5, students put their data science skills into action while assisting PhD researchers with real-life research projects that are overseen by university professors.
Due to the overwhelming interest in this Research Program and rigor of the material, students are required to
submit a Statement of Interest when filling out the registration form.
The Statement of Interest should be 300-500 words that highlights your interest in learning data science and conducting research, future university and career aspirations, and any other relevant information.
Note: We do not expect students to have experience in research or STEM. We are looking for students with passion, interest and curiosity to learn more about these fields.
