To deal with large amounts of data we must learn about Data Science.

Data Science is the next big thing in all industries as well as universities. Go through the two hour data science curriculum below to learn about it. When you are done you will be able to download and print a Certificate of Completion to impress your parents as well as use in job and college applications.

"According to an independent study, Data Scientist is predicted to be the Best Job in America for 2016 with an Average Base Salary of $105,395!"

When you are done, access your Certificate of Completion and post it to your Energy page along with a paragraph or two description of what you learned. If you want to print it, let me know and I can print it to Mrs. Farley's printer.

Don't forget to post your comic to your website.
