Virtual Data Jam for Families: Telling Science Stories Through Art
May 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On May 12 at 5pm EDT join us for a webinar that will help families prepare to participate in a virtual Data Jam.
Creatively communicating data trends is the heart of the Family Data Jam Competition. How can you use visual art, music, dance, creative writing, or other art forms to tell the science stories of your local ecosystem?
In our final Family Data Jam webinar, Bess Caplan (Baltimore Ecosystem Study) and India Futterman (Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies) will be joined by Bowie Zunino, Co-Director of the nonprofit arts community and education space the Wassaic Project, to help inspire your creative science storytelling.
See examples of winning Data Jam projects from past years, learn how to make the most of limited materials at hand, and explore the ways that professional artists have used different media to convey messages and tell stories.
Registration is required. This webinar will be held using Zoom. Please download Zoom on your device so you will be ready to join when the webinar begins.
