Event Description

The K-12 Data Science Conference 2021 will expose K-12 students, educators, and parents to data science concepts, paths, and careers.

Data scientist is now the highest-paying job for students graduating with a bachelor’s degree in the United States and is projected to grow from a $138.9 billion market in 2020 to a $229.4 billion market by 2025. However, experiences with data are rare in today’s K-12 classrooms and curriculum.

This program will introduce K-12 students, educators, and parents to foundational data science concepts and examples of data science careers across industries with a combination of workshops and presentations, divided into three levels for age-appropriate content. *K-12 educators and parents are encouraged to attend!*
