STEAM Meets SEL: Building Empathy Through Data

Though data is centered primarily in STEM fields, it is a powerful tool for helping us better understand ourselves and others. Students can use data to understand how others’ experiences differ from theirs and recognize when certain voices are absent. In this hands-on workshop, we'll introduce resources that get students engaging with data about themselves, their community, and the broader world in a way that builds empathy and drives the desire to think critically and ask data-driven questions.
