Your Mission: Mastering Complex
Data Science Concepts and Techniques

Embark on a galactic journey into the data science universe. Explore six different “planets.” Execute interactive data science missions and work through challenge questions. Most importantly, have fun along the way! Earn points, awards, and badges while achieving analytic goals in the course’s six different planetary modules:









Learn basic, commonly used data science tools and techniques including Python libraries, distance metrics, dimensionality reduction, and transformations.

Our journey begins on the planet Foundations, where you learn about Python, the software we use throughout our exploration. Although there are other programming languages suitable for Data Science, we use Python because it is easy to read and understand. On this planet, we also introduce techniques that are used on all of the other planets you explore.

Course Scope & Objectives

Explore Data Science is not meant to be an exhaustive exploration of all that is data science. Instead, interactive, hands-on exercises provide an introduction to commonly used data scientist techniques. At the completion of the course, student will have experience with the following techniques:

  • Distance metrics
  • Dimensionality reduction
  • Transformations
  • Aggregations
  • Clustering
  • Regression
  • Classification
  • Recommendation
  • Genetic algorithms


Take a look at the interface and other interactive features that Explore Data Science has to offer.
