This year’s program featured 13 Aggie Student Veterans learning to code in the open source program R used for statistics, modeling, and graphing data. The first day of the training focused on basic coding skills. On the second day students used these skills to make a linear model predicting the value of beta (fighting) fish based on location, color, size, and their parent’s value. For their final challenge, the students deployed web based application that use R and allow a user to estimate the cost of a fish based on the characteristics that impact value. This intensive workshop with real-time data analysis and coding helped train veterans to give them an advantage when applying to STEM fields.
