WeTeach_CS Summit 2024

Modern science teaching can benefit from combining computer science and data science. Students can construct science knowledge using data science techniques through writing and programming code. This session will show some Google Colab/Jupyter Notebook Python activities using authentic datasets designed for high school science courses. Learn how to access, reduce, visualize, and interpret some scientific datasets using best practices in basic data science. Some example activities will be explored using web-based tools tested in a classroom environment with students. Ideas about finding and accessing scientific datasets will be explored. All code is available as open source, and all lessons are shared as Creative Commons material.

Be sure to check out my list of activities that incorporate computational thinking, data science, and coding.
