Pasadena is proud to have been selected as the Global Mainstage location for the 2016 NASA Space Apps Challenge. As part of this distinction, Pasadena is fortunate to also host the NASA Women in Data Bootcamp on Friday, April 22.
The Women In Data Bootcamp, developed through NASA’s Women in Data initiative, welcomes newcomers and seasoned experts alike for a top-level introduction to coding, data science, technology platforms, and challenge development. Bootcamp attendees will learn new concepts, strategies and skills from keynote speakers and panelists including Kimberly Bryant of Black Girls Code, Dr. Anita Sengupta of NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Astronaut Doug Wheelock.
Mentors from NASA, Microsoft, Intel and more will host interactive stations and breakout sessions throughout the day where participants can get hands on experience with innovative tools, ideas, and approaches for creating tech-based solutions.
The Women In Data Bootcamp is designed to bring an even greater diversity of skills and perspectives—particularly from women and girls who are curious to learn more about data, coding, and innovation; and who seek to engage with a like-minded community—to address challenges on Earth and in space.
