NCDS DataBytes Lunchtime Webinar: Bringing Data Science to Middle and High School Education

In this National Consortium for Data Science webinar, presenters will share several efforts to increase awareness and implementation of aspects of data science skills as well as how to improve data literacy for all students in middle and high schools. Participants will engage in a discussion as to where and how data science skills and data habits of mind might be incorporated in secondary curriculum and opportunities beyond the traditional classroom walls. The presenters will share how efforts at NC State’s Friday Institute for Educational Innovation and RTI International are focused on improving data science education in secondary schools, and participants will brainstorm additional ways the data science community can be involved.
