Data Science is the new technological trend. Everyone is excited about it. Few people really know what it is, how to do it, or what the implications are.

This workshop will give you an introduction to Data Science, and support you in building lesson plans for the 3 key skills: Data Collection and cleaning, Data Analysis, and Data Visualisation. We will use examples from highly successful student data science projects, and show teachers how to access authentic scientific datasets from CSIRO to build engaging projects ranging from the highly technical to simple spreadsheet skills.
