The Data Science Education Program seeks to make the ability to understand and formulate reasoning based on data accessible to all Berkeley students. Even before the first pilot offerings, a team of students were working to understand how the program could be designed to best provide what students view as essential to their college experience.
As the program continues growing, the Student Team has come together to continue to develop this understanding from the student perspective. Student team members interview; they discuss; they collect data; and they are a part of the process of creating a data science learning community.
Eight student teams focus on the following areas: Curriculum Support, Connector Associates, Web Infrastructure, Diversity and Inclusion, Backend Infrastructure, Outreach, Mapping, and Research Collaboration.
The student teams are generously hosted by the Berkeley Institute for Data Science.
Students interested in joining the Student Experience Team should look for announcements on this site, on the Data Science Education Program Facebook page and through the Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program.
