Data Science with R

Data Science with 'R'. A comfortably paced program specifically designed to introduce middle and high schoolers to the amazing world of Data Science. Taught by instructors with years of industry experience in Data Science.

Program Structure

Data Science is one of the hottest jobs family of this century and has application in every industry. R is one of the most popular data analysis and visualization tools used by college students and industry professionals.

This program is designed with a comfortable pace for middle and high school students to learn the R platform and Microsoft Excel in data analysis applications.

Starting with understanding the tabular data storage structure, students will navigate through simple simple Database SQL to summarize data and use the powerful visualizations of the R platform to generate insights.

Part of the year long data science course. This course will be followed by Data Analysis in Python, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Python.

This unique program will introduce students to the concepts of database and coding in the R platform to generate insights from data, while maintaining an appropriate pace of instruction that will be manageable by students in middle and high school.

About our instructor: Tuhin Dutt

Tuhin (Mr. Dutt for students), founded Thinking Feet and has had a long and deep career in Data Science in various domains across financial services. He was also the winner of the inaugural Big Data Hackathon in Charlotte. He has developed this unique program to give an early exposure to students in the exciting field of data science.

One of the main objectives that students will achieve in this course is to not only learn the R platform but also learn to ask the relevant business questions and then code in R to answer those questions using data. The class will feature tons of brainstorming, research, collaboration and learning through iterations of success and failures.

Who will benefit

Ideal for students who have taken some coding classes prior and are ready to experience professional level Data Science platforms.

This course will excite students who are ready to take the leap beyond coding games and visual applications into the world of business analysis with data. If your child has a high degree of persistence, self motivation and a hunger to learn advanced technology, they will thrive in this program.
