On Tuesday 12 February 2019 Year 9 had the opportunity to be given a talk from Cheryl and Maria, data scientists.
We learned the importance of maths in all aspects of technology. They work for a company called Karhoo who compare the price and speed of different taxi companies for business trips all in one app.
They also told us about the advantages and disadvantages of their job. Cheryl told us how she loved problem-solving, which is a big part of data science. They gave us the advice that we should take maths before computer science as it opens up many options.
Overall this was an amazing talk and we learned so much. Thanks to Ms Ghorbannejad for organising the guest speakers.
