Analytics Boot Camp
For the past five summers, NLP Logix has run an analytics boot camp for rising seniors in the Duval County Public School System. This five-week program allows 10 – 12 students from different schools to work in teams (of course) learning the basics of analytics and machine learning. The students are each given a laptop to keep and the first week focuses on teaching the fundamentals of Structured Query Language (SQL) and the second week focuses on learning Tableau and visualizing and analyzing data. The remaining weeks focus on teaching the fundamentals of machine learning using Python and the program ends with the students presenting actual machine learning models they built to solve a problem to various entities in town, including the University of North Florida School of Computing, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the leaders in Jacksonville City Hall.
