Whether you’re creating it or using it, data surrounds our everyday lives. How can data be analyzed to tell a story? How can we use data to form a prediction or describe patterns? How can we make sure a data set is valid and does not display bias?
Our data science students addressed these essential questions by completing a series of projects using the data science design process: ask questions, gather and organize data, model, analyze and synthesize, and finally (after revisions) communicate data. Their results are impressive, beautiful, and include a wide variety of topics from data postcards, to business re-ports, to full-scale data visualization reports.

EXPERIENCE WATERLOO FOR YOURSELF
If you (or someone you know) would like to learn more about Waterloo, join us on South Congress for a Student Experience Day on December 1. Through a “day in the life” your student will experience project-based learning in action right here in the school! (Click here to register).
