The Translational Data Analytics Institute hosts a free summer camp that introduces 30 young women in grades 8-10 to the exciting new discipline of data science and analytics–a 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 services–and they are in high demand by employers.
During camp, campers:
In addition, ongoing learning opportunities after camp include:
Young women who attend schools in Franklin County and will be entering grades 8, 9, or 10 in autumn following the camp are eligible to apply. Students from Columbus City Schools or Metro Early College High School are especially encouraged to apply and are given first preference for camp slots.

Yes! Lunch and snacks are provided.
Transportation is provided between Ohio State’s Pomerene Hall (1760 Neil Ave.) and local high schools. For 2018 those schools were Linden-McKinley STEM Academy (1320 Duxberry Ave.), Columbus City Preparatory School for Girls (1390 Bryden Road), and Metro Early College High School (1929 Kenny Road). Additional locations are considered based on those selected to attend the camp.
Buses depart from the high schools at 8 a.m. and depart from Ohio State in the afternoon at approximately 4:30.
