About Data Science

Data science is one of the fastest growing, in-demand professions today! Data scientists harness the power of data from the past to build models that predict what may happen in the future. They thoroughly record data using notebooks, tables and graphs, then use their math and reasoning skills to look for patterns.

In the end, they create models that can help identify and cure diseases, capture criminals, create self-driving cars, and much, much more!

The potential of data is endless!
