STEAM Summer Camps

STEAM Summer Camps (USDA): Leveraging open data in government operations and policies will require data analysts, quality assurance specialists, and data officers with a variety of data experience.  Because students’ interests in pursuing technical fields begins in schools, USDA has launched an Open Data Science Technology Engineering Agriculture and Math (STEAM) Summer Camp Program in order to build capacity and support IT workforce development. Through these two-week STEAM Summer Camps, USDA engages middle and high school students in USDA’s data-intensive activities to provide them with hands-on experience in accessing and using open data sets (https://www.patriots-ttc.org/usda-summer-camp.html).
