DSI Scholars is different from conventional researh experience for students programs by providing enrichment activities that build a community of data science learning and research.

In Summer 2018, we kicked off a summer of data science research with a five-day bootcamp. Every week during summer 2018, the scholars learned about one area of data science research from a Columbia researcher. Below are the presenters of our meetup series during summer 2018.
