  • Pop Culture Data Science is an activity created in partnership with MIT AppInventor and UMass Lowell's iSENSE teams.  It gives gives beginners an accessible introduction to crowd-sourcing data, visualization, and data analysis using interactive tools. The aim is to demonstrate that anybody can contribute to data science projects and that computer science can be connected to a wide variety of topics (even trends in popular culture) making it relevant to a variety of people. In this activity, students practice asking their own questions about popular culture and seeking answers to those questions using computational tools.
           Go to and select "MIT Scheller Teacher Education Program" in the created by pull down.


  • Rock, Paper, Scissors is an "unplugged" activity helps students learn how modeling and simulation works by having a group of students play different versions of the Rock / Paper / Scissors game, and see the results as different modeling experiments.
           Go to and select "Project GUTS" in the created by pull down.


We hope you enjoy these activities. Please let us know how your students liked them.
