Program to Engage Milwaukee, Green Bay Students at Intersection of Sports, Data

Michelle Morris-Carter, principal of Golda Meir School, says “Providing this program for our students will serve as a catalyst for ensuring that our students are poised and ready to embark upon careers in the data science field.”

A new sports analytics program is coming to Green Bay and Milwaukee school district, CBS 58 reports.

The Sports Analytics Club Program is modeled to engage high school students of color and steer them towards careers in fields like engineering and data science.

“I’m super excited. It involves science, math, a lot of inside work for sports,” Solimar Sanchez, a junior at Golda Meir School, told the TV station.

Sanchez was selected to work with about 20 other students after school, learning how data science plays into sports. They will work alongside teams like the Bucks and Brewers.

Golda Meir is one of two schools in Wisconsin offering the program. The second club will be founded in Green Bay in partnership with UW Green Bay and Green Bay Area Public School District.
