Data Science for Women Summer Camp

The Translational Data Analytics Institute hosts a free summer camp designed for young women in grades 8-10 to explore data science and analytics–an exciting, 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 services–and they are in high demand by employers. Campers will:

  • 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 TDAI, the Ohio State Planetarium, and the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design
  • Explore educational and career opportunities in data science and analytics

Below is a highlights reel for the 2019 Summer Camp, as well as a podcast with The Past Foundation.
