Middle School Data Analysts

I’m so excited to be volunteering a session with a group of young women who are learning about Office software this fall. Learning how to move around columns of numbers and values, making sense of the contents, and using those insights to make decisions is so potentially empowering. Or boring…

My current daydream about the session is that they’ll each be Marketing people for a record label, trying to use data to decide how to market a new artist on a limited budget. They’ll input names of 10 friends, then values for column headings like favorite social channel, and we can get into the weeds as much as they’re interested about how we might make sense of what we know about these 10 people. I’ll report back later this year…
