Coding Elective Data Science I

Data is everywhere around us, transforming our world. Learn how to make use of Python, the most popular language for data science — and create beautiful data visualizations.

What You'll Learn:

  • Introduced to art, design, and animation principles using Processing, a programming language designed for the visual arts community.
  • Draw on a digital canvas, create Snapchat-style photo filters, make games, and much much more.
  • Take inspiration from famous artists like Picasso, Mondrian, and Monet, then recreate their own work in the same style—using code.
  • Turn your digital photographs into interactive, Pointillist masterpieces!
  • Learn how to draw colorful shapes on the canvas, then invent your own emojis!

What's Inside!

With Tynker, kids use beginner-friendly drag-and-drop programming tools to create games, animations, and much more. Watch your code come to life! What will you create?

How It Works:

Start a Course

From your student dashboard, select EXPLORE and search for Data Science I. Inside, you’ll find:

  • An interactive textbook, with hundreds of embedded challenges and exercises to try
  • Data science labs, where you’ll take real-world data and then inspect, clean, visualize and analyze it — just like the pros
  • Assessments and quizzes make sure you understand key concepts and syntax
  • An end-of-course capstone project, where you do your own original data analysis, from start-to-finish

Completing Lessons

All Tynker lessons are self-guided. As you advance through each course, your work is automatically saved, and you can restart wherever you left off. You’ll unlock badges and achievements, too, as you make progress, and a certificate for each course you complete.
