The Data Science Education Program seeks to make the ability to understand and formulate reasoning based on data accessible to all Berkeley students. Even before the first pilot offerings, a team of students were working to understand how the program could be designed to best provide what students view as essential to their college experience.
As the program continues growing, a broader team of students have come together to continue to develop this understanding from the student perspective. We interview; we discuss; we collect data; we are a part of the process of creating a data science learning community.
