Want to go beyond the basics of computer science, and dive into the advanced skills and pathways that computer science offers past high school? Join us on Monday August 15th at 4:00pm CT to learn more about the Data4All High School Bridge Workshop, co-hosted by Argonne National Laboratory, and the Data Science Institute and Office of Civic Engagement at the University of Chicago!
Data4All engages high school students in high-level data and coding challenges. Our goal is to create a continuous, evolving computer science pathway for students, allowing them to smoothly transition from the basics of computing through high school to college and beyond.
Activities at the workshop will include:
- Learning the Python programming language (no prior knowledge of Python necessary)
- Conducting inquiry-driven research in small groups
- Training on how to investigate data problems and present findings
- Developing critical collaboration, problem-solving, and communication skills
Data4All is open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have completed Algebra 1. The program lasts 8 weeks, with students meeting on Saturdays near the University of Chicago campus.
