WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

Data

Data is a hot topic, but not a new one. We think it’s important to help people of all experience levels feel empowered to use data — and have fun while doing it.

Peer Learning

There are many people in our community who are experts in data collection, analysis, and presentation. By connecting experts and professionals with students and novices, both groups learn together.

Non-Profit/Social Service

Many important organizations that serve our region have limited resources that restrict their ability to collect or analyze data in meaningful ways. Helping to accomplish small projects and present ideas or lessons for a non profit’s data work can have a lasting impact.
