Data Science Cohort 4

Come see us demo on June 10!

When we set off on the NSS DS4 journey together in September 2020, we had no idea what would be in store for us. In addition to the general anxieties that have shaped all of our lives throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we knew that we had signed ourselves up to push our limits - intellectually, physically, and emotionally. Over the past nine months, however, we have discovered an exhilarating camaraderie in each other and have found ourselves supported at every turn by our phenomenal NSS mentors and the generosity of the Nashville Tech community.

Our Teachers

Teaching is hard and underappreciated work, but our instructors and TAs never seemed to tire of the challenge. Whether helping us debug code (sometimes into the wee hours of the night), leading hands-on workshops, or offering insightful feedback on our project ideas, we couldn’t imagine having learned as much without your guidance. Thank you.
