DATA SCIENCE EDUCATION & WORKFORCE OVERVIEW

The ability to utilize and understand data is an increasingly critical skill for the evolving 21st century workforce, as espoused in studies and reports by National Academies and Federal Agencies. Because data literacy at multiple levels is now needed in almost every technical and business sector, there is a severe shortage in skilled workforce to meet current and emerging demands. To combat this shortfall, an all hands on deck approach is needed. K-12 systems, colleges and universities, including community colleges, underrepresented groups, and women must be engaged in data science training for the modern workplace.

 

IMPACT

  • $280,000+ in funding for students to gain real-world data-related career experience
  • Data science training workshops at 7 minority-led, -serving, primarily teaching institutions, community colleges and four-year liberal arts colleges
  • 100+ direct and indirect learners who benefited from workshops/bootcamps, modules, and courses taught by DataUp trained faculty members

DataStart provides real-world experiences for students while helping entrepreneurial companies Graduate students from six universities in the southern U.S. will spend the summer working on data challenges important to the success of new and growing technology companies thanks to a program called the Southern Startup Internship Program in Data Science (DataStart). DataStart interns will address a wide range of data-related business problems, including spotting trends in the diversity of people included in clinical trials, developing methods for using sensor data to detect loads on wind turbines, and the challenges of cleansing and standardizing data to extract more knowledge from it.
