The Carpentries is an international network of data scientists and technical specialists who provide training in a wide range of data skills including Python, R, data management, and much more. The two-day workshop (from 10am-3pm, with additional hang-out and Q&A until 5pm) will be taught by data specialists from academia and industry brought in for Penn Undergraduate Research Mentoring Program students. Students will be introduced to OpenRefine, a tool for data management, and Python, the primary programming language for most data scientists. From data analysis with pandas to data visualization with matplotlib, the session will prove useful to add to students’ technical toolkit for academic research, further studies, and beyond. Participants will be using a real-world data set to learn and practice skills that can be applied to any research area. Moreover, participants will gain access to Penn libraries data specialists who can assist students throughout their research and time at Penn. This event is co-sponsored by the Penn Libraries, Center for Undergraduate Research & Fellowships, Data Driven Discovery Initiative, MindCORE in association with Data Carpentries.
