STUDENTS AND EDUCATION OVERVIEW

The South Big Data Hub has provided students opportunities to gain real-world experience through attending multi-week team building fellowships, collaborating in fast-paced atmospheres, providing expert knowledge to address company data-related business challenges, obtaining internships to utilize data for social impact, and participating in speaking engagements and travel awards to expand their knowledge and network.

In addition, the South Hub and partners developed tools to help youth understand the many aspects of the data-intensive computing environment through a national online Data Science course.

 

IMPACT

  • 176 students participated in DataUp workshops
  • 100+ indirect learners who benefited from workshops/bootcamps, modules, and courses taught by DataUp trained faculty members
  • Over $280,000 in funding for students to gain real-world data-related career experience

The 2018 DataUp program includes seven institutions from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and other minority-serving institutions (MSIs), community colleges, and primarily teaching-focused institutions. Institutions will receive a 2-day data science workshop on their respective campuses and travel funding for an in-person ‘train-the-trainers’ workshop in Atlanta, GA to prepare teams to teach regional data science workshops.

This presentation will outline a series of educational interventions developed at CMU to advance a range of critical thinking skills. We will explore how these tactics could potentially be used as part of a multi-pronged intervention to reduce the harmful effects of some parts of social media.
