Preprocess Data with the scikit-learn Python Package
In this lab, we will load a dataset from a SQLite database into a pandas DataFrame. Once loaded, we will standardize the dataset using the `StandardScaler()` method and write it to a new table within the SQLite database. Basic Python programming skills will be required for this lab.
