  • Writing Data Stories

    This project integrates computational data analysis into the middle school science curriculum. Students combine personal experience, interviews, and journalistic investigations of scientific phenomena with data investigations to create multimodal “data stories” that both tell stories about data and how it was collected and analyzed, as well as with data about socio-scientific issues.
