Name: Central College hosts Midwest Sports Analytics Camp
Date: July 16, 2019 - July 19, 2019
This four-day camp offers students currently in grades 8-10 the chance to develop math, stats and data skills through sports-related contexts. Campers will engage in experimental data collection (free-throw shooting), problem-solving (when should a football coach go for two?) and working on open-ended projects (such as creating a predictive model for March Madness). The camp is coordinated by Professor of Mathematics and Assistant Women’s Soccer Coach Russ Goodman and Greg Kapusinski ’07, a math teacher and assistant girls track and field coach at Southeast Polk High School. The camp is scheduled for July 16 – 19 from 9am to 3pm each day. Cost is $180 and includes t-shirt, meals and all activities. Transportation is also available from Des Moines for $20 for the 4 days.
