TeenTech - Data Science
Monday 09 October 2017
This was a video of an event I took a few students to at Accenture (a large data company) just before the summer term.
The event was hosted by TeenTech and Accenture where they wanted to teach students about the topic of ‘Data Science’ (or Big Data). At the start of the day none of these students knew anything about the topic but then left with a huge understanding of how to manipulate data to discover patterns and solutions to a range of real world problems from predicting the weather to determining the right player for a football team on a particular day to guarantee a certain number of goals are scored.
One of the students (Leynner Caicedo) got involved in conversations with Accenture about his smartphone app idea he came up with for the TeenTech Awards last term and they became interested in potentially working with him once they have a working model of the app to show.
