Coding Girls: Creathon in Caserta

One of the developments of the tenth edition of the Coding Girls Programme is the technological declination on data science, organised in collaboration with the Italian Statistical Society (SIS). In fact, with the growing digitalisation of processes, the ability to collect, analyse, and interpret data has become essential to make informed decisions and develop innovative solutions.

The classes of a school in Cassino (Frosinone), coordinated by Prof. Giovanna Russo, and one in Caserta, with Professors Antonella Serpico and Antonio Di Giacomo were involved in the new declination on data science. Over 60 students will meet today for a challenge at the "Luigi Vanvitelli" University of Campania. They will work in teams to complete the presentations to be submitted to a jury. So, how did schools prepare for the data challenge?

“For us, it was an original activity with a great educational value. Many students participated and although they did not complete the course, we evaluate the experience positively, and thank the organization and for having involved us,” explains Antonio Di Giacomo, a Professor at the Giordani School in Caserta.

“It was a great experience as we faced a new and difficult topic for high school students. The teaching was innovative and stimulating, and the group of tutors made us appreciate the theoretical part through the statistics exercises and group activities,” said some students.

Flavia Capone, who has a degree in Mathematics and is currently enrolled in the master’s programme in Data Science at the “Luigi Vanvitelli” University of Campania, is one of the coaches. “Since I was young, I have always had a passion for mathematics, and I understood how fundamental it is to everyday life. Every time, I am more and more amazed by its natural rigor and its banal complexity. I believe that it is essential to make people understand the importance of this subject and to teach anyone who still has some doubts about how to use it, so that as many people as possible can appreciate all the wonders that mathematics offer in everyday life. Mathematics is like a universal language that allows us to solve complex problems, make informed decisions, and appreciate the beauty and symmetry of the world around us. It's incredible to see how mathematics is present in every aspect of our lives, from economics to technology, from science to music. We cannot ignore the power and majesty of mathematics and should continue to deepen our understanding of this fascinating subject in order to improve our lives and our world.”

Teresa Speranza, 24, enrolled in the master’s programme in Mathematics, believes Project Coding Girls was the opportunity to bring together her passions, data analysis, and teaching. “Since first grade, mathematics has been my favourite subject. So, I attended a master's programme in Mathematics, but I also have a strong passion for statistics and data analysis. I recently had the opportunity to delve deeper into the topic of mathematics teaching thanks to a university course,” explains Teresa. “I became a coach thanks to the Coding Girls Project which completely merged my interests.”

Other coaches included Samuel Hinn Lionel Katam, Daniele Mirto, Mattia Maietta, Pasquale Pipiciello, Gianmarco Borrata, and Ali Arabi.
