About YDS Summer Camp

The Young Data Science (YDS) summer camp brings together a collaborative group of 10-15 high school students from around New York and Connecticut. For 4 days this summer, students will participate in an introduction to Machine Learning, learn computer programming languages including Java and Python.

The camp's goal is to expose motivated and academically promising students to object-oriented programming (Java) and data science programming (Python), and Machine Learning for data analytics.

Young Data Science provides an intensive, hands-on science curriculum that emphasizes discovery through machine learning lecture, invited speakers in computer science, as well as programming language sessions. The curriculum is designed by UB faculty, and graduate and professional students. UB Ph.D students and Computer Science students serve a vital role as teaching assistants and mentors.


       Java: intermediate level of Java session based on hand-on labs

       Python: introduction of Python focusing on social media data analytics
