The Michigan Institute for Data Science will be hosting our annual Data Science Summer Camp for high school students June 29-July 3, 2020 on U-M’s campus. We are looking for 5-7 graduate students to work as instructors alongside the camp’s Director and Lead Instructor, Prof. Danai Koutra. Instructors will lead data science projects and help students as they develop skills throughout the week. A description of the camp and additional hiring details are below.
In the Data Science Summer Camp for High School Students, participants will learn the basic mathematics behind data science and will work on team projects with classmates using real life examples. Over the course of the week, the content will build in complexity and difficulty, and will include coding and strategies for data visualization and statistics. Additionally, invited guest faculty will give presentations each afternoon to expose the students to various data science application domains. The course will be directed by U-M College of Engineering faculty with the small group projects led by graduate students.
The camp will be held primarily in Weiser Hall with some sessions at other university locations (M-City, Big House, etc.). The camp will be held in its entirety on U-M Ann Arbor’s campus.
Dates and Times:
Camp sessions run from 9am-4:30pm with a break for lunch between 12-1:30pm. Instructors should be available for most of the camp sessions, but some flexibility in schedules are expected.
