COP26 – Use Data Science to reduce your school’s carbon footprint

Just launched  – a new live lesson for learners P7-S4.

The event ‘Use Data Science to reduce your school’s carbon footprint’, which is free, will be held on 9th Nov (2pm) and aligns well with COP26. Each live lesson focuses on a data science topic and brings together a YouTube livestream event with a series of guided web-based activities.  The first live lesson, ‘Defend the Rhino’, focused on machine learning (training cameras to spot poachers and save rhinos!).  The second ‘Data Selfie’ live lesson supports learners to explore data visualisation.

You can access both lessons from the events page in the Data Education in Schools website: Events for data education – Data Education in Schools (dataschools.education)

Details of ‘Use Data Science to reduce your school’s carbon footprint’ can be found here: Data Skills Live: Use Data Science to reduce your school’s carbon footprint Tickets, Tue 9 Nov 2021 at 14:00 | Eventbrite

The live lesson format has been developed in partnership with Skills Development Scotland and Digital Skills Education.  It’s proven to be very popular with 9643 learners (to date) having engaged in the first two activities. The 10,000 learner isn’t far off now!
