CorrelAid has almost become a tradition in Konstanz!
As the “birthplace” of CorrelAid, the small university town on the lake has always had a large circle of data science enthusiastic students. In order to fill this tradition with life, the Local Chapter Konstanz was founded in 2019 and has since then organized several R-workshops, data roundtables and data hackdays in cooperation with the data journalism team of SWR. Also, a project with the NPO “Studieren ohne Grenzen” (Study without borders) could be realized.
There is a close cooperation of the local chapter with the Open-Data Portal of the city of Konstanz, for which for instance R and Python packages have been created. Moreover, there is also currently an ongoing project with the NPO “Stolpersteine Konstanz”. However, we are particularly proud of our efforts in the area of education. Therefore, in 2021 we started to present our workshops on our own website and to make the materials available. Feel free to check it out!
As you can see, Konstanz not only has CorrelAid tradition, its own local chapter and a lake to offer, but also a great Data4Good future.
So feel free to contact us if you want to join us or just have a look!
Marco is studying Politics and Public administration in his Bachelor's degree at the University of Constance. The methodological and statistical focus has fascinated him since the beginning of his studies, so that data analysis and and the relation to Data Science became stronger and stronger. After Marco heard about CorrelAid, he wanted to start engaging in the local chapter of Constance. The versatility to help is large and the numerous projects inspire him. Currently, he is focused on building a good foundation in the world of data. He is also fascinated by CorrelAid's goal of doing something good with data. And of course he is looking forward to be in exchange with the other CorrelAidX chapters about ongoing projects and the goal to change the world a little bit together, based on Data4Good.
Zoé is currently studying her Master’s degree in Social and Economic Data Science. Outside of academia, there is one perfect way to combine pure coding and helping others: Data4Good and thus CorrelAid.
More interested in the "S" than the "E," Jonas is studying SEDS (Social and Economic Data Science). He likes that CorrelAid is using Data Science to help society rather than maximizing profits using ethically questionable methods. CorrelAid allows him to have a positive impact with the skills he learned during his studies.
Phil is currently studying Social & Economic Data Science for his Master's degree and, as a former student of Political and Administrative Sciences at the University of Konstanz, there was no chance of getting around CorrelAid.
Nico is currently studying his Bachelor's degree in political and administrative sciences. The combination of this degree and a keen interest in Data Science for Good inevitably led to his involvement with CorrelAid.
