Scholar Launch is holding several STEM research programs for high schoolers in July 2021.
Big Data Analytics Using RStudio: Statistical Analysis and Predictive Modeling: Students will use RStudio to load data from League of Legends, conduct statistical analysis, and carry out predictive modeling in order to evaluate the performance of teams.
Faculty Advisor: Assistant Professor, West Point Academy
Subject Areas: Data Science, Machine Learning and Deep learning, Game Design
Data Visualization: Using Data Models and Geographical Information to Design Web-Mapping Projects: Students will work on a hands-on web-mapping project of visualizing the spatial distribution of variables of interest using open-source technologies. They can later display these maps as part of their spatial data visualization portfolio.
Faculty Advisor: Assistant Professor, Brown University
Subject Areas: Data Science, GIS, Spatial Structures, Web-mapping
Biobuilder Summer Bootcamp: A two-week intense bootcamp that allows students to dive into the world of synthetic biology and biodesign, analyze data and learn how to apply these methods to laboratory results in real time. Participants will have the opportunity to design their own synthetic cells and complete and publish a written project proposal.
Faculty Advisor: Instructor, MIT Department of Biological Engineering
Subject Areas: Project Design, Computation, and Data Visualization for Bioengineering
