Explorations & Activities

Exploring the Data We Share

Our curriculum is organized into learning “modules” called Explorations that provide a consistent, fast, and flexible format for STEM “explorations” whether you teach science, make things, or code like crazy. We recommend you do the ” databot™  Basic Training and read the  “Explorations” section first, then dive in!”
