Students in any grade level may participate, and no statistics or computer science experience is required. Snacks will be provided. 

This hands-on workshop will explore the fun of data analysis through basic statistical techniques taught using R, a free statistical programming language. Students will also learn about what a statistician does and what the requirements are to pursue higher education in statistics. The workshop will include visits from expert statisticians in a variety of different statistical careers, and students will have the opportunity to chat with them about their background and work life.
