Imagine a data literate future
Imagine a future where everyone is data literate. Teachers use real datasets to teach everything from History and Geography to Science and Maths. And kids are using Data Science to change their world and solve problems in their community. You can bring that future closer, by giving the gift of Data Science Education this Christmas.
But there’s a problem
Teachers don't have time to find cool datasets, work them out, build lesson plans around them, and develop their Data Science skills. Kids are learning STEM skills with one-day robotics programs, where all they really learn is that STEM is just toys. It's not useful for anything real.
The Australian Data Science Education Institute is changing that
We're developing lesson plans and projects that empower kids to change the world, using STEM and Data Science skills. We also train teachers to design their own Data Science projects that give kids the chance to solve problems in their own community.
We're a registered charity, developing kids' Data Literacy & Data Science skills to put them in the driver's seat of this new, Data Driven world.
Give Data Science Education for Christmas!
Got someone in your life who's hard to buy for? Donate a Data Science lesson plan in their name for Christmas!
Choose from the Effectiveness of Vaccines, the Science of Climate Change, or Political Bias in the Media, and help us develop Data Science Lesson Plans that will support teachers all year round.
Vaccines are cheap! For $10 you can help us write lesson plans to help kids analyse and communicate how well vaccines work.
Climate Change is getting more expensive every day. For $25 you can help us teach kids how to communicate the impact and cost of climate change.
Political Bias in the media could cost us everything. For $50 you can help us show kids how to measure bias objectively, and communicate that bias in a really compelling way.
With your help we can make Data Science Education real for students around the globe!
Lesson plans for EVERYONE!
Our resources will always be free on our website, with a Creative Commons license, AND we will send them to you and your gift recipient to share with the schools you care about.
We'll also send a shiny Data Science e-card to your chosen recipient, to make sure that they know about the awesome gift you've given in their name.
