Data Science Outreach

Truman State University’s Data Science Outreach introduces inquiring students, teachers, parents, administrators, and all interested people to the world of data science.

What is data science?

Data scientists study and analyze vast amounts of data, sharing their conclusions to impact real-world decisions. It is a fast-growing, well-paid career.

Data science promotes curiosity and provides context. It is an ideal tool to provide real-world context to the concepts you are already teaching in your classroom. Check out our math modules for grades 5 – Algebra II and the award-winning Statistics and Government lesson plan for free, ready-made lesson plans for your classroom. These lesson plans were created in partnership between K-12 and college faculty and were designed with interesting content and ease of use in mind.
