BootCamp Leads Dr. Andrew Mauer-Oats, Dr. Raffaella Settimi-Woods, Ms. Jillian Stoller
This summer, 15 students participated in a five day Data Science BootCamp sponsored by CPS, DePaul University, and University of Massachusetts - Boston, which featured guest speakers from Microsoft, Sprout Social, DePaul, Uptake, and Deloitte.
Led By Dr. Mauer-Oats from Whitney M. Young Magnet High School, students explored Data Science concepts and learned how to answer questions with data. Through hands-on learning activities related to filtering, grouping, and summarizing data sets, they generated various visual representations of data to plot models and predict future outcomes.
