Nura Gili
Two members of our Data Science Society (DataSoc) delivered a presentation to a group of 11 high school students as part of the annual UNSW Nura Gili Winter School. 

Jacky Koh and Ben Smith's session, "The Fun + Life-Changing Facets of Data Science + A.I.", showcased some fun and fascinating data science and A.I. applications for the high school group. The presentation was well-received by the students, who actively participated in the session and posed several questions to the DataSoc duo. Nura Gili

The UNSW Nura Gili Indigenous Winter School is designed for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students from Years 10, 11 and 12, providing the high school students with an opportunity to experience university. Throughout the week-long residential program, participants are introduced to tertiary studies in the discipline area of their choice, and are mentored by Indigenous students currently studying at UNSW, along with graduates, academics and experts from industry, as well as having the opportunity to meet staff from the university who can help them identify their areas of interest, clarify their subject choices and provide info on gaining entry into their degree.

Thank you to Jacky and Ben for running this engaging session!
