K-14 Educators

Data Science Academy Fellowship

We live in a world that relies on data and it is essential that we introduce students to data analysis and statistical literacy at an early age. We believe that a strong pipeline for a future generation of data-literate citizens begins in K-12. We also believe deeply in ensuring that data science is introduced in inclusive, engaging, and personally relevant ways. By inspiring and equipping students with the tools they need to solve problems, we can work toward a vision of data literacy for all. 

The UArizona Educators in Data Science (EDSci) Fellowship (1) supports Arizona middle and high school educators across all disciplines in their effort to bring real-world data science learning experiences into their classroom, and (2) promotes efforts to create a more diverse data science field through inclusive recruitment, retention, and teaching and learning strategies.
