What is data literacy and how can we make it fun? Join Kabir and the STEM NOW team to find out more.
In this information era we live and breathe data, whether we are aware of it or not. Data is the new ‘Air’. We create data when we play games, watch TV, listen to music, use satellite navigation, use our phones…you get the picture.
The question is, how do we use this data to make better decisions? How do we get better at utilising this data to improve our thinking process and drive our conversations? In reality, most of the data we create is not being utilised due to the knowledge gap. In this session I will talk about my experience of bringing data literacy to schools, how I learned from our 7-year-old son and his friends and continue to do so! I will cover:
he Masterclass will include a short Q&A.

NEW Masterclass on Black Holes - Wednesday 24 March – 16:00 – 17:00
Do you need inspiring online Space & Astronomy content? Or are interested in all things Space. Join Chris and the STEM NOW team for a Masterclass on Black Holes.
Chris Joly has been delivering online presentations on all things “Space” to schools and colleges throughout 2020/21
Black holes must surely be one of the most bizarre phenomena known to humankind. Chris Joly will give a talk about Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which led to the discovery of black holes, and the later work of Stephen Hawking who did much to get their existence accepted by deeply sceptical astronomers.
Chris will also talk about how they are detected and what we have learned about them in the last 50 years, rounding off with a look into the future of astronomy.
P.S. Chris will not be showing any formulae!
