About this event

Perfect for your P7-S4 Students

Join our data science team as we return once again to help stop a gang of rhino poachers. This session is designed for class teachers to bring their learners to or for individuals to log in and play along. It's free to participate, you will just need access to a web browser - more details below.

You’ll use data science skills to analyse CCTV data from across a South African national park. Then create your own machine learning model that recognises images of poachers, and work together to catch them before it’s too late.

This is based on a real life case study where conservationists and technologists in South Africa are using artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things to help save endangered wildlife.

This interactive and engaging workshop introduces learners to key data science topics including image classification and supervised machine learning. This gives learners the chance to experience working as a data scientist.

The workshop is suitable for learners from P7-S4. No previous experience of data science is required. However, a love of rhinos is encouraged.

To take part:

You will need access to YouTube to see the presenters as well as the Google Chrome web browser to access the lesson itself.

This event is brought to you by the University of Edinburgh’s Data Education in Schools team - part of the DDI Skills Gateway - in partnership with Digital Skills Education and Skills Development Scotland
