Free Data Science and Chess Project

Our next Data Science Session will be in January 2023 due to upcoming events and holidays making scheduling difficult.

Space is limited please sign up below.

Are you a student interested in pursuing a career in Data Science or Tech and also love Chess? Then we have the project for you! We have brought onboard a Data Scientist that will be working with students on a Data Science Project that will combine the field of Data Science with Chess. No coding background is required, we will start from the beginning and guide each step of the way.

There is no other project like this anywhere! It should be a very fun and exciting journey!
