Event Details

Data is all around us but what does it mean when we say data is driving the future or we are doing data science? How do we demystify data science and make it accessible to our K-12 students across the curriculum?


Come learn some practical concrete strategies for introducing data science into the elementary and secondary school classroom at this hands-on, interactive workshop.


* No background in statistics, computer science, or programming is necessary to participate in this event.


* A box lunch will be provided to attendees who RSVP before August 13, 2019
