Data Navigator 2.0

Data Navigators 2.0

This course for youth is adapted from our 10-week Data Navigators course for adults interested in exploring how to transform data into actionable information.

Having the skills to turn raw data into actionable information is becoming increasingly necessary in the expanding world of big data. Data Navigators 2.0 guides youth through learning data analytics basics, including 1) Posing a question 2) Collecting relevant data 3) Cleaning the data using spreadsheet software 4) Visualizing that data using Tableau and 5) Analyzing data for insightful trends and correlations. As part of a partnership with Rhode Island Nurses Institute Middle College, youth final projects and visualizations included healthcare related data and youth earned credit through their school.
