Data Analysis is an extremely important skill to learn in today's world. This course is designed to provide girls with an introduction to fundamental Python programming for analytics purposes. The course will teach them how to gain essential insights by evaluating data and representing it visually by working on projects that target real-life topics. By the end of this course, girls will know how to read data from sources like CSVs and use libraries like Numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib, and Seaborn to process and visualize data.

The girls will use Jupyter notebook to code. 

For admission in this course, the girls need to be in grade 9 or above with some exposure to statistics. Python Level 3 or equivalent is recommended, but not required.
