Data 101 with Microsoft

Data is everywhere around you – at school, in music and entertainment, on social media, and practically anywhere else you can think of! Microsoft employees will share their stories and acquaint students with the amazing variety of data career opportunities. Students will learn how to collect, visualize, and analyze data to discover insights and inform decisions as they design their own products!

Microsoft’s mission is to enable people and businesses throughout the world to realize their full potential by creating technology that transforms the way people work, play, and communicate.

This event is available nationwide (virtual) and in-person (Puget Sound) for students in grades 6-12. Note: Elementary WBLE are 60 minutes in length, versus the typical 90-minute event for grades 6 and above.
