January 30th, 2016

When: Tuesday April 19, 2016 from 12 pm to 3 pm
Where: Boston University, Science Center, 590 Commonwealth Avenue

Data and network science aims to solve some of the most complex problems facing our society today. In this series of discussions and workshops for teens, families, educators, learn to see the world around you in a whole new way… through the lenses of data and networks! Data and networks are everywhere, embedded in our society, biology, technology infrastructures, and so much more. Data and networks are at the interface of science and art.

The workshop will cover the following:

Data & Network Science All Around Us

Discover the many ways in which data and network science is changing the ways we explore our and make meaning of our interconnected world. Through hands-on activities, learn about the spread of viruses and how people are connected and what that means for politics and organizations.

Design Your Own Networks

In these hands-on activities, you will build your own networks from the ground up and discover what makes some resilient and others susceptible to attacks.

Art & Visualization

Explore some of the principles of design in computational visualization of data and networks by surveying a wide range of data visualizations, and have the opportunity to program your own!

Registration is now closed. By Friday, April 15, we will be sending email to all registrants with further information.

The Data & Network Science Festival @ BU is an event in support of the Cambridge Science Festival, an annual celebration of science, technology, engineering, art and math during April school vacation week for K-12 students.
