"Data Science + Sports: A Win-Win for HBCUs"

About this event

Sports technology not only helps athletic programs win competitions, it also delivers a powerful and engaging tool for data science education. Join the discussion on how Johnson C. Smith University, a small, private, Historically Black College and University (HBCU) and sports tech company ShotTracker, is shaping a win-win approach through Data Science + Sports.

Dr. Felesia Stukes is an emerging leader in higher education and an assistant professor of computer science at Johnson C. Smith University. Dr. Stukes pairs resourcefulness with innovative thinking to create greater opportunities in computing for women and communities of color. Her research is focused on Computer Science (CS) education to find more effective approaches to bring computer science to a wider and more diverse audience. Her recent project was funded by the Department of Defense and titled, “Data Science Education and Sport: Equipping the DATA Bulls”. It was designed to increase participation in computing through data science education and research through sport.
