TThe objective of this course is to give opportunities for kids to become data-driven decision makers and understand how data revolves around them. Our primary focus is to show kids how the subjects learned in school (e.g. math, physics, history or biology) are being applied to solve real-world issues through data science.
We will first introduce mathematical foundations for kids to become a data scientist. The goal is to show kids how to give objective data-based answers and make evidence-based decisions. Rather than having kids memorize a set of formulas like they do in school, we will teach kids how to prove things mathematically when making decisions so that kids can focus on seeing the practical aspect of using math to predict global outcomes.
Using the leading data scientist software Rapid Minder as our teaching platform, we will teach students how a typical data science project cycle is structured. From collecting data to developing mathematical models or building data visualizations, we hope to give kids a glimpse of how data is being used to solve global problems.
Students will be given data to analyze issues about this world. The goal is to teach kids how to build effective data visualization and develop awareness on how data is everywhere in their surroundings. We will publish all of their analytics results online so that they can share it with their family and friends.
