NASEM Workshop on K-12 Data Science

Michelle was a Co-Chair, with Dr. Nick Horton of Amherst College, of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine’s Workshop on the Foundations of K-12 Data Science held in Washington, D. C. and online Sept 13-14. The convening sought to share the state of the art from research and practice in Data Science Education. It marked one of the first national events dedicated to the topic, and reflected a variety of approaches to data science education including curricular integration across school subjects, standalone courses and pathways, out-of-school structures, tool and curriculum development, and more.
