Our Fall Data Science Showcase featured more than 30 student posters and project presentations on everything from understanding achievement gaps in public schools to improving water quality. 

The Showcase on December 5 at Sutardja Dai Hall offered a window into the amazing ways that students are using data science to advance discovery and impact across campus and beyond, including:

  • Hands-on student Discovery research projects leveraging data science across disciplines,
  • Modules, an innovative approach to integrating data science in research and teaching across campus, from neurobiology to linguistics to macroeconomics, and  
  • Human Contexts and Ethics (HCE) toolkit to explore what’s at stake for society and ethics in every step of the data science life cycle.

Student applications are now open for next semester's Discovery projects. Learn more here!
