Help Foster Student Success Through Experiential Learning in Data Science
The UC Davis Library has always been a hub for interdisciplinary learning - a place where paths intersect, students collaborate and ideas are shared.
Nowhere is that truer today than in the UC Davis DataLab: Data Science and Informatics at Shields Library.
"The advent of widely available 'big data' created untold opportunity for discovery and innovation. It also brought a new and complex set of interdisciplinary challenges."
-- Carl Stahmer, Executive Director of the UC Davis DataLab
At the DataLab, UC Davis students and researchers from across disciplines work together to tackle those challenges, using data science to solve some of the biggest questions facing our society today.
Through hands-on data science classes and training, data challenges and hackathons, and participation in real, ongoing research projects, students explore issues from California's drought to the state of American political discourse.
Help the UC Davis Library and DataLab develop more experiential learning programs that will prepare our students to succeed in today's data-driven workforce. Make a gift today!
