Exploring Data Science Through the Lens of Civics Education is a 3-year research and development project that explores the potential for engaging students in investigations of real-world civic datasets in ways that align with and support middle school social studies content. It uses a collaborative co-design process working with partnering teachers to develop data-rich experiences for the social studies classroom crafted to

  1. deepen students鈥 data literacy,
  2. develop students鈥 sense of efficacy and empowerment in working with civic data, and
  3. create inclusive experiences connecting data to issues that have meaning and relevance for students and their communities.

Our research explores synergies between data science and social studies education that have potential to deepen how students engage with both disciplines.
