Data Science: Teacher guidance

The MEI Introduction to Data Science short course materials can be accessed on Kaggle. This allows access to interactive web-based coding activities that can be edited and saved.

To use Kaggle students will need to create their own account by registering at: www.kaggle.com.

Guidance for all students

  • All students should read the Kaggle terms and privacy statements.
  • Students should not make any of their notebooks Public. They should only share Private notebooks with other users that they know.
  • Our advice is for students under the age of 18 not to post or reply to any discussions or forums on Kaggle.
  • Should students wish to engage in the discussions or forums they should not divulge any information of a personal nature.

Guidance for students under the age of 16

  • Students under the age of 16 will need consent from a parent or guardian to use Kaggle. This will require the parent or guardian to create an account and then set-up the student’s account via: www.kaggle.com/guardian-consent-minor-use
