But first, the power of water is incredible! So much devastation all at once! Can it be avoided? Can it be predicted? Researchers are still trying to determine the best method of forecasting the impacts of these storms. Check out this story, “How meteorologists predict the next big hurricane,” what a Harvard Professor says about Data Science, and videos of test-driving a life-size Lego Bugatti Chiron.

Knowing How to Keep Us Safe
Hurricane forecasting and predicting is not easy or 100% accurate. Researchers use multiple models to determine the potential effects of tropical storms and hurricanes. Do you want to learn more about how both atmospheric and ocean characteristics can influence storm intensity and how scientists believe that understanding the ocean could provide the biggest help in forecast accuracy?

Data is Power!
The key to real-world success is the ability to understand data, according to Harvard Professor Kane. In fact, he also says that data is how they build models for marketing, politics, medicine, and more. Data Science is not just for scientists. In fact, any career field you are interested in can be enhanced with an understanding of data analysis. Not surprisingly, it was the Government Studies Department that brought this course to Harvard, because powerful people and politics are all about data. Read more about it here.
Everything is Awesome! Especially when it involves Lego and Bugatti Chiron
Like the song from the Lego Movie says: “Everything is Awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team”… especially when that team is using hundreds of thousands of Legos to build a life-size sports car including the motor. And it actually drives! This is certainly not your standard Lego kit. You won’t believe your eyes when you click here to watch this video.
