Most people learn best by doing, yet many data science courses only ask you to memorize information, never to apply it. We took a different approach:
In guided projects, you'll use the concepts you just learned to answer real-world questions on real datasets.
In our interactive lessons, you'll learn a new concept, write code to apply it, and get feedback all on the same screen.
In a typical Dataquest session, you won't go more than five minutes without writing code!
Sound fun? That's because it is!
When you work through a Dataquest mission, you don't just learn a list of commands...
We teach you the foundational concepts behind the commands.
Then we help you apply them to interesting, real-world data science problems.
Before you know it, you'll be cleaning, exploring and visualizing real datasets on your own.
High-quality, expert-crafted curriculum
We produce all our own content, which means you can expect a consistent style and quality throughout.
Each course is carefully designed so concepts build on each other. We'll never ask you to apply a concept we haven't taught.
We continually optimize and improve to ensure our courses are effective and up-to-date.

How Dataquest Works
Our entire learning experience runs in your browser — no installation necessary. Our introductory courses will teach you the fundamentals from scratch.
There are no deadlines, so you can learn data science at your own pace. And the best part? No videos. Just a clear path to learning.
Our Learning Platform
On Dataquest, you'll spend most of your time learning through our in-browser, interactive screens.
Typically, a screen presents a new concept on the left side, and challenges you to apply that concept by writing code on the right.
Before moving to the next screen, you submit your answer and get immediate feedback on the code you just wrote.
The Dataquest Community
All Dataquest students have access to our student community. Here, our trained moderators, content authors, and other students are ready to help you learn data science! This community is your go-to resource if you get stuck on a mission, encounter a platform issue, need advice, or want feedback on a project.
Your success is our top priority
We've seen firsthand that data literacy has the power to change careers, communities, and lives.
That's why we're committed to building an effective teaching platform, increasing access to diverse communities, and conducting a responsible business.
