Something new for British Science Week 2019 #BSW19

 

Move over Spielberg, STATWARRIORS® are coming your way…

Everyone loves a good film or TV show, but what makes one? This is the question that has been circulating around Primary Engineer Programmes headquarters. The team have been busy developing the next big thing to encourage primary and secondary pupils (and later in the year – college and university students) to interogate data to create their own sure-fire award-winning hit film or TV show concept. The primary and secondary teaching resources provide a dataset of over 2,000 data points, lesson plans, teaching resources, activity sheets and video tutorials.

 

STATWARS® is set to change the way you teach data science and develop critical thinking skills in a creative context. All teaching materials are provided free to UK based learning institutions.

 

We are excited to be launching the outcomes of the competition pilot in association with Skills Development Scotland, Data Lab, the BBC and City of Glasgow College on the 14th March 2019 as part of DATAFEST19 with the Scottish Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation Mr Ivan McKee.
