var mission_1 = spreadAwareness()

Data Science is not itself an end - it’s a means to an end. We aim to help our community understand the potential of this tool, and pass it forward.

var mission_2 = spreadKnowledge()

The potential of this tool lies in its versatility: its limits are the wielder’s. We seek to help our community expand their limits, and be able to use Data Science to generate value.

var mission_3 = spreadOpportunity()

To generate value, our community must become part of the larger Data Science community around the world. That’s why, through direct exposure to industry challenges and employers, we strive to embody and strengthen that link.
