Data+

“I've learned so much about data science and I now feel very comfortable coding in several languages. There were multiple times during the summer where I was asked to do something and had absolutely no clue what I was doing, but Data+ gave me the skills and confidence to solve problems beyond what I thought was the limit of my knowledge. (Ultimately, I became really good at googling how to code!). I learned the importance of communication. It's very easy to spend all day coding, but if you're not able to communicate with the public on what you are doing, the code is meaningless.”

“I have gained a more realistic understanding of what working in a data scientist role looks like. I have learned a lot more than I was expecting to and cemented the skills that I had learned in class. I came into the summer unsure of what area of technology I wanted to pursue as a career, but now I am more confident of my role within data science. I have further learned what it looks like to work within a team, with a manager, and with other coworkers.”

“Data+ helped me learn a lot about how to create a machine learning pipeline in order to discover meaningful relationships in data. It also gave me a broader view of data science and career opportunities. I also learned that data science research involves a lot of preprocessing and simply turning the data into a form that a model can digest.”

“I’ve learned many technical tools for data analysis as well as improved my abilities as working part of a team. It was a unique experience working in data science research because this type of work isn’t offered in the lab portion of many classes. It’s an incredible opportunity to engage in data science research as an undergraduate student, especially when the decision making process is mostly up to you and your team.”

“I have learned a lot about JavaScript and Google Earth Engine and issuing remote sensing data to see what changes are happening at Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and how they are happening. I have also learned that working on a project like this is a great way to learn and make something at the same time.”

“I have gotten a better look at where humanities can be useful and frankly, necessary, in implementing new methodologies and approaches to the data science field.”

“I went from fumbling through CS101 my freshman fall to playing around with the hyper parameters of machine learning algorithms! That's a success in my book. I learned that data science projects take time and many little failures before you can arrive at anything close to the outcome that you'd like. I learned that, seemingly counterintuitively, I can't rely on other people to teach me things I can learn on my own, but there exists a whole community of people in data science who want to help me learn and grow.

“I feel I have gained a lot of technical skills regarding natural language processing which I really wanted to experience. I also got to experience what it was like working on a research team and attempting to solve a problem in that setting, which I found really valuable. I realized that data science really is a part of every field and it is so broad in terms of scope and what kind of work you will be doing.”
