About this event


		FIRST EVER K-12 Data Science Conference 2021 image

Data scientist is now the highest-paying job for students graduating with a bachelor’s degree in the United States and is projected to grow from a $138.9 billion market in 2020 to a $229.4 billion market by 2025. However, experiences with data are rare in today’s K-12 classrooms and curriculum.
