Data literacy is a critical 21st century skill that students need for the jobs of tomorrow. Microsoft Hacking STEM team is excited to partner with NASA to bring you the Day of Data, where your students can explore how data powers our astronauts, our space missions, and our world. Celebrate World Spreadsheet Day and 20 years of humans aboard the International Space Station with live events, lesson plans, and virtual experiences. You can participate in three ways,
  • Talk to a NASA Astronaut: Join us for two live events on October 14th and November 2nd at 10:00 am PDT with NASA astronauts and rocket scientists, where they will discuss how they use data and the impact that data has had on their job. Speakers will share their personal stories and answer questions from the audience at this Skype in the Classroom Live Event. The video will also be available on demand after the live event.
  • Get Free Resources from the Microsoft Educator Center (MEC): Dive into immersive NASA-inspired data experiences in Excel with standards-aligned lesson plans for your students. Choose from a set of 45 to 90-minute activities that are suited for remote learning. Your students can explore space related data in a self-paced Excel workbook, and have the option to reflect on their experiences using Flipgrid.  Detailed lesson plans, curated public data sets, and thought-provoking reflection questions can be found on the Microsoft Educator Center.  
  • Attend Free Virtual Space Data Camps with Microsoft stores team: If you would like a guided experience in your classroom or want to do this with your family, visit the Microsoft Store virtually through a ‘Space Data Camp’ where a Microsoft Store team member will walk you through the Day of Data experience. Participants will get a chance to earn a digital certificate of completion and a virtual Space Data badge. Space Data Camp
