Workshop Materials

We are actively developing data science workshops, which are meant to supplement the MEDS curriculum and teach additional skills. Below are our most up-to-date materials, presented to our current cohort of students. Materials for all workshops, including those that are no longer taught/maintained, can be found on the UCSB-MEDS GitHub Organization.
