Discover Data volunteers have the unique power to inspire awareness and interest around 21st century careers that use data to make the world a better place. The volunteer component of this program provides students with a first-hand connection to what’s possible as they understand and apply steps in the data science process to problems that interest them. Discover Data’s volunteer resources were designed to equip our community of data volunteers with everything they need to make their classroom visit a success and inspire tomorrow’s leaders with the power of data.
Our survey is designed to give classrooms more of what they want as we build resources for this program. Read the FAQs before your classroom visit to learn more about the survey and how it works.
