Data science is the ability to ask questions, collect, analyse, interpret, and communicate stories about data. As technology makes it easier to collect vast amounts of data, the skills to understand data and use it to solve problems are becoming increasingly valuable. These skills are useful not just in maths and computing, but across the arts and sciences. The course will be taught by Dr Jasmeen Kanwal and Kate Farrell and has been developed in collaboration with data scientists, colleagues in industry, and educational experts, providing an innovative and exciting opportunity for professional development. Participants will discover ways to integrate data literacy and data science across BGE as well as the senior secondary curriculum in their subject. Teachers across all subject areas welcome!
