About YDS Summer Camp

The Young Data Science (YDS) summer camp brings together a collaborative group of 8-10 high school students from around New York and Connecticut. For two weeks this summer, students will participate in an introduction to data analytics, learn intensive computer programming languages including Java and Python, and tour many aspects of data science.

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

Young Data Science provides an intensive, hands-on science curriculum that emphasizes discovery through data science lecture, research lab tours, invited speakers in data 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. In addition, there will be a field trip to IBM T.J. Watson, NY including tour and lunch with Korean scientists at IBM T.J. Watson.


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

       Python: introduction of Python focusing on social media data analytics

       Data Analytics: introducing data science, data mining and statistics

       Project: Social media data analytics and mining

Who may attend? 9th - 12th graders who are interested in Computer Science, Data Analytics and Programming are welcome to apply.

Is there a cost? No, it’s FREE.

Transportation? No transportation will be provided. Parents need to drop-off and pick-up at the University of Bridgeport (Bridgeport, Connecticut).

Where is it? YDS camp will be held in South Hall at the University of Bridgeport which is located in Bridgeport, Connecticut (I-95 South, Exit 27).
