ALLIANCE, Ohio — The University of Mount Union is pleased to announce a new summer Data Camp for rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in science, math, engineering, technology, and/or business this June on the University’s campus.
The Data Camp is a two-day program that introduces participants to the field of data science and analytics through practical, hands-on case studies. Students who attend the camp will learn valuable skills and technical experience, learn about data-intensive career pathways, gain confidence and make friends. No prior experience with computer programming is necessary.
“The vast majority of today's in-demand, well-paid and challenging jobs require employees to be able to work with, and learn from, massive quantities of data,” said Dr. Colin Campbell, associate professor of physics and data science and analytics program coordinator at Mount Union. “We are excited to provide this opportunity to help prepare the next generation of data scientists.”
Mount Union is offering two camp sessions for participants to choose from on June 27-28 and 29-30, with sessions running from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day. The registration fee is $50 and includes lunch both days and a camp T-shirt. Space is limited to 16 participants in each camp session on a first-come, first-served basis.
