Cleveland Fed Presents Virtual Camp on Economic Principles

CLEVELAND – High school juniors and seniors interested in economics can participate in a free virtual summer camp from July 11 to 15, hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

The program will provide students with hands-on, real-world experience with skills economists use everyday. Topics include econometrics, RStudio, data analysis and data interpretation.

At the end of the program, students will share their research findings on one of the following topics through a writing example, which students will be able to use later when applying for college or internships. The three topics are the gender pay gap, global carbon emissions and neighborhoods and home values.

A Cleveland Fed research analyst will guide each group as a program instructor for the week. Camp organizers will place students in separate, virtual breakout rooms throughout the week based on the topics students selected. The deadline to register is July 8.
