Python and Data Science


Data Science skills are in high demand across industries like technology, business, finance, healthcare, academia, government and more. Join us for an introduction to this versatile world of data. Participants will learn how to use Python Programming Language to analyze, visualize and present data. They will get a glimpse of website traffic data as tracked by Google. The action packed program then puts them into the shoes of a financial adviser as they review stock market prices and make investment advise to a friend. There is more! The participants will then turn their attention towards healthcare as they research youth tobacco usage survey from Center for Disease Control (CDC). They will use their learning to develop a public service announcement on the perils of tobacco use. Catch this amazing adventure with the all so prevalent data and learn some transferable skills.
