The Johns Hopkins Data Science Lab has already brought data science to millions of people through MOOCs. They’ve published books and blogs and developed software and podcasts. Now they’re enlisting this cast of felt friends—some of whom bear a striking resemblance to certain Biostatistics faculty. The goal: Make “data science accessible to the entire world” (kids included). Their next project is a series of fun, short videos for the elementary school set.
Stay tuned. With the help of videographer, artist, and editor Jessica Crowell, they’ve created a pilot episode with more in the works—coming soon to YouTube.
