Data science is one of the fastest-growing career fields. That’s because we're living in a world that’s driven by data! Data plays a crucial role in almost everything we do – from predicting football match results, to getting new music suggestions to stream, to generating texts on ChatGPT, and more. We’re inviting high school students to join us online for a summer camp where they will dive into the exciting world of data science. In interactive sessions, students will build a song lyrics app while learning essential data literacy concepts and text processing. This is the perfect opportunity for teens to explore the world of data, learn future skills, and get the chance to win a prize!

The one-week virtual summer camp will be held in English.

This course is tailored especially for high school students, typically between the ages of 13 and 18, offering a range of fun and interesting challenges. No coding experience is needed.

We'll be using KNIME Analytics Platform, a user-friendly, low-code, visual programming tool. Throughout the course, expert data scientists from KNIME will be on hand to guide participants every step of the way.

If the timing of this camp isn't suitable for you, consider joining us for the session scheduled on July 8-12, 9AM-1PM, CEST instead. Please note that the online summer camp will only proceed with a minimum number of participants.

Registration deadline: July 1
