After five years and hundreds of classes delivered to NYC employees, our instructors have refined an approach to data literacy education that is engaging, informative, and- dare we say- fun! We use NYC’s open data as a cornerstone of the classes, creating an inquiry-based approach to solving complex issues that affect all New Yorkers. As the classes unfold, we strategically infuse data analysis skills in platforms such as Microsoft Excel, R, Python, QGIS, and SQL. By the end of each class, students walk away with enhanced data analysis skills; an increased awareness of the city, state, federal, and global data available; and a larger network of fellow NYC employees.

Curious to learn more about our approach or how you can get involved? Join us for this 60-minute workshop where we will explore what we do, how we do it, and then walk you through the analytical process for our own complex question.
