NCDS DataBytes: Bringing Data Science to Middle and High School Education
Hollylynne S. Lee, Professor, NC State University and 2018-19 University Scholar at RTI International
Peter Baumgartner, Data Scientist, RTI International
There is a strong movement for undergraduate and graduate programs to incorporate aspects of data science in disciplinary and multi-disciplinary programs. How do we help incoming students to be attracted to and prepared for data-intensive career pathways? In this session, the presenters will share several efforts to increase awareness and implementation of aspects of data science skills, as well as 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!
