Join other undergraduate students to grow and develop essential data management skills during the 2018/2019 researchERS program! Food provided.
researchERS is a free program open to any current undergraduate UW-Madison student. It features a series of evening workshops (food provided) to learn current practices for managing the data used in research projects or lab research in any discipline.
The program provides hands-on training in topics like data cleaning and visualization, as well as guest speakers from local companies to talk about jobs that work with data outside of the university setting.
Any undergraduate student in any major currently enrolled at UW-Madison can join. Students working with primary research will get the most out of this program. No previous knowledge or experience with data is required.
The researchERS program believes that diversity benefits everyone, and we are dedicated to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for all participants to grow and learn together.
