Data Science for Women Summer Camp

The Translational Data Analytics Institute hosts a free summer camp that introduces 35 young women in grades 8-10 to data science and analytics-an exiting, fast-growing field centered on scientific methods and processes for extracting new knowledge from data. Students who learn these skills can combine them with an unimaginably wide range of interests, from business and biology to health care and education, to city planning and social serivces and they are in high demand by employers.

Over the course of five days, campers:

  • Work in student teams and with mentors to develop analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Learn from scientists and students
  • Gain hands-on experience using data software, visualizing data, and giving presentations
  • Experience data science in use at the Translational Data Analytics Institute and other locations throughout Ohio State such as the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design and Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center
  • Explore educational and career opportunities in data science and analytics

Additional learning opportunities after camp include:

  • Mentorships with Ohio State students
  • Attending lectures and other campus events during the school year
  • ACT/SAT prep sessions
  • Exposure to student challenges on campus such as DataFest, HackOHI/O, and MakeOHI/O
  • Leadership roles in future Data Science for Women Summer Camps
