New horizons and controversies seem to emerge constantly in the world of statistics and data science. Who can keep up? Our distinguished panel of statistics and data science leaders will discuss this and more in an informal and wide-reaching conversation that contextualizes the SDSS experience with issues of the day.
Considering how to incorporate data science into your high school STEM classroom?
The goal of this workshop is for you to leave with data science skills and applicable examples that can be used in your classroom.
This workshop will answer questions like:
• What is data science?
• How can high schoolers prepare for data science courses in college?
• What does a career in data science involve?
We will walk through how data scientists carry out projects using RStudio, introduce the basics of the R programming language, and work with real datasets to generate visualizations and analyze data.
