Data Science Academy
The BDPA Data Science Academy is a 12-week workshop program that aims at exposing college students to open source tools in data science. The workshops will have four main focus areas: Excel, SQL, R, and Python. At the end of the program, participants get a chance to use their skills to compete in the Datathon at the BDPA National Conference.
