STEM Session - Data Analysis

arrow

Program description

Jump head first into the world of data in this introductory session on data analytics. Students will use PASCO technology to analyze various types of data used in the field of aviation. Students step into the role of scientists as they collect, organize and present their findings, which are interpreted through an aviation lens. Types of data include temperature, wind speed, velocity and
