STEM Webinar: Data Literacy

About this event

“Big data”—the ability to harness and use data at scale—has transformed our economy, our democracy, and our daily way of life. Yet, there are significant skills gaps in the data science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) fields. The power of data is rapidly transforming careers in manufacturing, health care, and education. AI has made navigating social media and online information a societal conundrum. Join us to understand what Federal, state, and local partners are doing to address these gaps, and what resources exist to bring data education programs to your school.
