Data Science for Everyone (DS4E) Announces Bite-Sized Lesson Plan Competition Winners!

CHICAGO, IL - The Data Science for Everyone (DS4E) Coalition is pleased to announce the winners of the first-ever Bite-Sized Data Science Lesson Plan Competition:

1st Place: “The Thrills of Roller Coasters: Using Data to Make Recommendations,” by Hollylynne Lee, Gemma Mojica, Emily Thrasher, Zachary Vaskalis, Bruce Graham.

3rd Place: “The Banana Survey Project,” by Ned Diamond.

Additionally, find our excellent honorable mention submissions here.

The DS4E Bite-Sized Data Science Lesson Plan Competition seeks high-quality, easy-to-teach, data-science related lesson plans for middle school and high school classrooms. We reached out to teachers, principals, educational organizations, school districts, state departments of education, and others working close to students. The winning submissions are inspirations of how data science could be taught and have huge potential to be scaled throughout the country.

In the following week, DS4E is proud to invite the winners to conversations with leading stakeholders and decision-makers in the movement, as well as provide technical assistance to implement their lesson plans in classrooms worldwide. Starting next week, we will feature top submissions on our website and throughout the Freakonomics network.
