Virtual Conference & Expo

3 Age Groups

100+ Presentations and Panels

2,000+ Soon-to-be Data Scientists (Parents Welcome and Encouraged!)

10+ Workshops and Labs for every age group and experience level


Data scientist is now the highest-paying job for students graduating with a bachelor’s degree in the United States and is projected to grow from a $138.9 billion market in 2020 to a $229.4 billion market by 2025. However, experiences with data are rare in today’s K-12 classrooms and curriculum.

This program will introduce pre-college students, grades K-12, to foundational data science concepts and examples of data science careers across industries with a combination of workshops and presentations, divided into three levels for age-appropriate content.  Parents are encouraged to attend!
