How to Tell a Science Story with Infographics


Data Jam is an opportunity for students in grades 6-12, plus families, to explore ecological datasets, creatively communicate the stories they tell, and win cash prizes. Write a song, record a video, create a book, paint a mural – your imagination is the limit!

Whether you are new to Data Jam or a seasoned participant, you are invited to our upcoming 'Data Jamming: Creatively Sharing Science Stories of the Hudson Valley' webinar series for teachers, parents, caregivers, and interested students. Join these free webinars to learn more about the Hudson Data Jam competition, plus tips for engaging and supporting students as they develop questions, explore their local environment, and communicate what they find.

Each webinar will feature an expert guest speaker, active participation, and the opportunity to interact with fellow Data Jammers. All webinars will include ample time for Q+A.
