DataWorks NC Partners with Duke to Train the Next Generation of Community Researchers

DataWorks NC   (Durham)

August 2017

Data Works NC partners with Duke University's Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) on Data+, a 10-week summer research experience for Duke undergraduates interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. Students learn how to marshal, analyze, and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the modern world of data science. Data+ Projects with the city of Durham and DataWorks included ones on gentrification and tracking neighborhood health. DataWorks NC shared the results of the projects with residents and community coalitions.
